Claremont senior fellows Charles Kesler and Allen Guelzo are two of three recipients of the prestigious 2018 Bradley Prize, a high honor bestowed upon distinguished individuals who have influenced American scholarship and debate.

The Bradley Prizes honor scholars and practitioners whose accomplishments reflect The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation’s mission to restore, strengthen and protect the principles and institutions of American exceptionalism.

“The Bradley Foundation is proud to honor distinguished individuals whose extraordinary talents have influenced American scholarship and debate,” said Richard Graber, President and CEO of the Bradley Foundation. “We look forward to an evening that recognizes their achievements and celebrates the belief that political and economic freedom lead to greater opportunity, prosperity, and quality of life.”

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation recently announced that George Will, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and conservative thinker, will serve as master of ceremonies for the 2018 Bradley Prizes.

The 2018 Bradley Prize recipients will each receive a stipend of $250,000. A selection committee of distinguished individuals chose this year's honorees after careful review of nearly 200 nominations.

The committee members include: Victor Davis Hanson, scholar, author, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow and 2008 Bradley Prize recipient; Diane Hendricks, Founder and Chair, ABC Supply Co.; Alan Charles Kors, Henry Charles Lea Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Pennsylvania and 2008 Bradley Prize recipient; James Arthur Pope, Owner, Chairman and CEO, Variety Wholesalers, and Bradley Foundation Board Chairman; Tracie Sharp, President and CEO, State Policy Network; Kimberley Strassel, author and columnist, Wall Street Journal and 2014 Bradley Prize recipient; Robert Woodson, Sr., Founder and President, Center for Neighborhood Enterprise and 2008 Bradley Prize recipient; Dianne Sehler, Bradley Foundation Senior Advisor to the President; and Richard Graber, Bradley Foundation President and CEO and Selection Committee Chairman.
