Prizes and Honors
 
Israel Prize

The Israel Prize is the most important and prestigious distinction awarded in the State of Israel. Each year, prize nominees in a broad array of categories representing Israeli endeavor on the practical and creative planes are recommended by the relevant judging panels to the Minister of Education. In order to encompass all possible spheres, it was decided to establish an annual "rotation" of subtopics within the set of permanent main categories in which the prize is bestowed.

Foundation for the Advancement of Science, Art and Culture in Israel, under the auspices of the Prime Minister of Israel, and is awarded in five fields: culture and art, exact sciences, life sciences, humanities and social sciences.

The prize honors its recipients for their "achievements in the interest of mankind and friendly relations among peoples [...] irrespective of nationality, race, color, religion, sex or political views." A sum of $100,000 is awarded in each specific field, and prize laureates are selected by an international professional panel that is appointed on a yearly basis.
