Michael Bruno Memorial Award
The Michael Bruno Memorial Awards are presented each year to Israeli scholars and scientists of truly exceptional promise, whose achievements to date suggest future breakthroughs in their respective fields. Candidates must be under fifty years of age.
Prof. Michael Bruno served as Governor of the Bank of Israel between 1986 and 1991, as well as Chair of the Board of the Rothschild Prizes Organization. After his untimely death in 1996, it was decided to dedicate the awards to his memory.
Yad Hanadiv began awarding the Michael Bruno Memorial Awards in 1999. Since 2012 the Awards are a partnership between Yad Hanadiv and the Israel Institute for Advanced Studies at The Hebrew University (IIAS). They are overseen by the IIAS’s Board of Governors.
