The University of Louisville and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary will announce the 2022 winners of five Grawemeyer Awards Dec. 6-10.
UofL presents the annual prizes for innovative ideas and works in music composition, world order, psychology and education and gives a religion prize jointly with the seminary. Award recipients will be named at 10 a.m. EST on the following dates:
- Music Composition, Dec. 6
- Ideas Improving World Order, Dec. 7
- Psychology, Dec. 8
- Education, Dec. 9
- Religion, Dec. 10
All recipients will be asked to visit Louisville in April to accept their $100,000 prizes and give free talks about their winning ideas.
Charles Grawemeyer, a UofL graduate, former seminary trustee and philanthropist, set up the awards program in 1984 to recognize the power of creative thought and underscore the impact a single idea can have on the world. He also asked that laypeople be involved in award selection to ensure broad understanding of the winning ideas.
