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.
