Donner Prize

The Donner Prize is an award given annually by the conservative[1][2][3][4] Donner Canadian Foundation for books considered excellent in regard to the writing of Canadian public policy. The prize was established in 1998. The grand prize is $50,000; short-listed finalists receive $7,500 each. To be eligible, a book must be on a single theme relevant to Canadian policy and be authored by one or more Canadian citizens. Entries are submitted by publishers, and selected by a five-person jury whose members are drawn from the ranks of Canadian professors, university administrators, businessmen, and politicians. The committee announces a short list in April of each year. The winners and runners-up are announced at an awards banquet in April or May.[5]
