Edwin J. Feulner, president of the Heritage Foundation, has been awarded one of the four 2012 Bradley Prizes for “outstanding achievement,” the Bradley Foundation announced Tuesday.
The award will be presented at a ceremony at the Kennedy Center in Washington on June 7. Each award contains a $250,000 stipend.
“Ed Feulner has elevated the influence of conservative research institutions since co-founding the Heritage Foundation in 1973 and serving as its president since 1977,” said Michael W. Grebe, president and chief executive officer of the Bradley Foundation.
“Under his guidance, the Heritage Foundation has become a bastion of ideas that are an integral part of the national conversation and that have shaped public policy,” Grebe said.
The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation supports scholarly studies and was founded in 1985 to promote American democratic capitalism, support limited, competent government, and defend American ideals.
