The Fund periodically awards a Chair Citation to recognize the extraordinary contributions of established journalists who are engaged in international reporting. The Citation recipients have been:
2007 -- Bob Woodruff, a dedicated international news reporter who turned a personal tragedy into an opportunity to inform and reform. While reporting from Iraq in 2006 he suffered a traumatic brain injury from a roadside bomb and endured months of painstaking recovery. Following his recovery, Woodruff led a documentary examining the failing conditions in U.S. veteran hospitals. With his wife, Lee, he also wrote a book chronicling his recovery and raising awareness about traumatic brain injury, an often unrecognized injury that affects many veterans.
2010 – Nicholas D. Kristof, who writes a twice-a-week column for the New York Times, has focused on humanitarian issues and human rights abuses around the world. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, he has lived on four continents and traveled to 150 countries in a quest to discover how oppressed and impoverished people cope with their many challenges.
