The Henry Richardson Labouisse '26 Prize Fellowship
The fellowship was established in 1984 in honor of Henry Richardson Labouisse ’26 by his daughter and son-in-law, Anne and Martin Peretz, and his grandchildren. The objective of the prize is to enable a graduating senior to engage in a project (work and/or study) that exemplifies the spirit of Labouisse’s life and works. Labouisse was a diplomat and an international public servant who in word and deed championed the causes of international justice and international development. During his long diplomatic career, Labouisse not only designed policies aimed at rebuilding war-torn and crisis-ridden societies around the globe but also played a leading role in implementing those policies on the ground, first in post-Second World War Europe and then in virtually every area of the less developed world.The Labouisse Fellowship, in the amount of $30,000, will be awarded annually to a graduating Princeton senior who wishes to work or study abroad on matters in keeping with the spirit of Labouisse's life, broadly conceived. The donors hope that independent projects of some practical nature, or ones carried on within some established institutional framework, will be supported by the fellowship. The fellowship may also support study at foreign universities, although not ordinarily at the major universities in Europe, for which there are ample resources otherwise available. Candidates are strongly advised to develop their proposal in consultation with an institution (for example, a university, a central or local government department, or a nongovernmental organization) at the locality where they intend to implement their project.
