The J. William Fulbright Prize for International Understanding is awarded annually to those chosen by the Fulbright Association. They are chosen for their contributions to bringing nations together, allowing cultures to understand each other, and bringing people together. The first award was given to Nelson Mandela in 1993. “The Fulbright Association will award the 2021 Fulbright Prize for International Understanding to Bono, the lead singer of U2 and the co-founder of ONE and (RED), sister organizations dedicated to the fight against extreme poverty, AIDS and other crises impacting the developing world, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. With this award, the Fulbright Association honors Bono’s commitment to seek justice by fighting to end extreme poverty, tackle global health crises, and spur economic development in the poorest parts of the planet.”
