Beginning in May 2022, The Dan David Prize is relaunching as an award that supports history and the study of the past, the Board of the Prize announced Wednesday.The relaunched prize, now the largest history prize in the world, will award up to nine $300,000 rewards annually to early- and mid-career scholars and practitioners around the world to recognize outstanding achievements in the study of humanity’s past and to support the winners’ future endeavors.
At $300,000 per award, the Dan David Prize is significant for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s the biggest prize for scholars in history. Also, it will go to people in the early or middle stages in their careers, the better to enable them to advance their work.
