The latest Grawemeyer Award winners will be in Louisville this week to accept their prizes and give free public talks.
The University of Louisville has handed out Grawemeyer Awards since 1985, when entrepreneur H. Charles Grawemeyer created the foundation to fund the awards.
The awards are given for music composition, world order, psychology and education. The university and the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary give a fifth award in religion. The idea behind the awards is to recognize ideas, not people, said Grawemeyer executive director Allan Dittmer.
