Our goal is to help others find their own voice, attain their own freedom and make their own way.
We go forward with complete confidence in the eventual triumph of freedom.

APPLY NOW for the Freda Utley Prize for Advancing Liberty
Deadline: August 31, 2005
The Atlas Economic Research Foundation (Bringing Freedom To The World) has established the Freda Utley Prize for Advancing Liberty to reward the efforts of think tanks in difficult parts of the world that are most effective in spreading the ideas of freedom (limited government, the rule of law, free enterprise, the dignity of the individual, etc.). This annual Prize will provide a $10,000 reward to a single winner that demonstrates excellence in reaching a broad audience or having a substantial impact on opinion-makers, so that concepts relating to freedom become better understood. For example, good candidates for the Utley Prize could be an institute that documents how its radio program reaches 100,000 listeners each weekday with discussions of economic liberty, or an institute that educates 50 college students each year through a certificate program, and has seen a dozen students from past years graduate into high government positions.
Think tanks may compete for the Prize by submitting an application about a specific project that has been completed, or a demonstrated body of ongoing work. Please note that the Prize will not be given to new or proposed projects that do not have an existing track record.
Atlas specifically solicits applications from organizations in countries where the ideas of liberty are not clearly understood or applied (i.e., countries which the various economic freedom indices term as "unfree"). Preference is given to organizations that are headquartered in such countries. However, organizations that are based in freer parts of the world, but developing and contributing to the creation of organizations in the target countries (i.e. serving as a catalyst), are also eligible to apply.
The finalists for the Freda Utley Prize will join Atlas in New York City for our 2nd Annual Freedom Dinner on November 9, 2005. The winner will be announced during the Freedom Dinner.
The above announcement (not including Bush's words) was sent as part of the August 19th e-mail bulletin of the "Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy."
