Carters Won Delta Prize

In Atlanta, University of Georgia president Michael Adams announced that former president Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, had been selected as recipients of the University of Georgia’s inaugural Delta Prize for Global Understanding. The award, funded through a $890,000 endowment from Delta Air Lines, provides a $10,000 award and an original sculpture to the nominee who best exhibits “globally significant efforts that provide opportunities for greater understanding among nations and cultures.”
