Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus to Receive 2018 Ford Family Notre Dame Award for International Development and Solidarity
Mar 5, 2018
Bestowed by the Kellogg Institute’s Ford Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity, the Ford Family Notre Dame Award for International Development and Solidarity recognizes individuals or organizations that stand in solidarity with those in deepest need. Awardees learn from those they serve, working together with them as they become agents of their own change.
Ford Family Notre Dame Award recipients are honored for substantial contribution to the promotion of international human development through research, practice, public service, or philanthropy.
In giving these awards, the Ford Program both celebrates the leadership and dedication of the awardees and bears witness to the many development challenges faced by the communities they serve.
The award is named in honor of University Trustee Emeritus Doug Ford ’66 and his wife Kathy, whose generosity helped to establish the Ford Program.
Nominations are solicited annually and may be sent at any time to firstname.lastname@example.org.
