What is the mission of the Foundation?

The Foundation rewards excellence globally and encourages achievement on the highest levels in fields that contribute to the well being of our world in both science and human rights. The International Prize Program recognizes and rewards the best work being done anywhere in the fields of Cosmology, the study of the universe; Genetics; and Neuroscience. The Justice and Women’s Rights Prizes ended in 2011, and their missions have merged and become the basis of the Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights, a Yale University program administered by Yale Law School
