Applications Invited for National Awards Program Honoring Successful Immigrant Integration Initiatives
Deadline: March 15, 2012

The Migration Policy Institute’s National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy has announced that it is accepting applications for the 2012 E Pluribus Unum Prizes.

The J.M. Kaplan Fund provides support for the awards in order to focus attention on successful integration initiatives and to model programs for others around the United States who might also undertake such efforts.

The national awards program provides $50,000 prizes annually to exceptionally successful immigrant integration initiatives. The program is designed to highlight and reward outstanding efforts that help immigrants and their children join the mainstream of U.S. society or that bring immigrants and native-born Americans together to build stronger, more cohesive communities.

The program is open to individuals, nonprofit and community organizations, businesses, religious groups, and government entities, agencies, and officials operating in the United States.

Awards are given for existing initiatives that can be evaluated according to the award selection criteria (significance, impact, and influence) based on their operations to date.

The awards are not intended to support the launch of new initiatives. Prize money must be used by each awardee to advance their integration initiative.

Complete program information, selection criteria, and application instruction are available at the awards program Web site.
