For more than 65 years, Ockenden International has helped refugees and displaced people across the globe.

The International Prize was launched in 2012 as was a three-year refugee studies fellowship at Oxford University.

This important prize for a project that aids refugees or displaced people – as well as the Oxford University Fellowship – honours Ockenden International’s founder Joyce Pearce and the principles on which Ockenden was established.

More than GBP500,000 has been given in prizes since the inaugural GBP60,000 prize was awarded in February 2013.
