The Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize was created by the late Professor Joseph B. Gittler to recognize outstanding and lasting scholarly contributions to racial, ethnic and/or religious relations. The Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Endowed Fund at Brandeis University supports this annual award.

The award includes a cash prize of $25,000 and a medal. The prize and medal are presented at a ceremony that includes a reception and a public lecture by the recipient on the Brandeis University campus in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Recipients of the Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize will have produced a body of published work that reflects scholarly excellence and a lasting contribution to racial, ethnic and/or religious relations anywhere in the world. Recipients need not be American citizens or reside in the United States.  To be considered for the prize, candidates must be formally nominated.  Nominations must be submitted in writing or by using the online nomination form; they should not exceed 1,000 words.

The nomination should include:

Nominations must be received by April 15 for candidates to be considered for an award to be conferred in the academic year immediately following.

Founded in 1948 to embody the highest ethical and cultural values, Brandeis is the youngest private research university in the United States and the only nonsectarian university in the nation founded by members of the American Jewish community. Named for the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis, the university is dedicated to academic excellence, nonsectarianism, service to the Jewish community, and social justice.

In the spirit of the Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize, Brandeis University celebrates a commitment to social justice and strives to reflect the heterogeneity of the United States and of the world community, welcoming students and faculty of every nationality, religion, and political orientation.
