The El-Hibri Foundation awards an annual prize to individuals who have dedicated their lives to making outstanding contributions and demonstrating long-term leadership in building inclusive and socially just communities in the United States.

The Foundation defines peace education broadly, it encompasses a range of activities undertaken in a variety of settings designed to build thriving, engaged, inclusive and collaborative communities:
- In community settings, peace educators lead appropriate interventions to conflict by promoting inclusion, equity, reconciliation, and social justice. Peace educators strive to make inclusion and the appreciation of difference and diversity widely embraced civic values and cultural norms.
- In academic settings, peace educators teach and develop curricula or learning programs which promote and model inclusion. They provide knowledge and leadership skills to build collaboration across difference and lead conflict resolution and transformation. They promote respect for human dignity, human differences and human rights.

The Peace Education Prize is intended to celebrate and encourage individuals who embody the principles of peace, justice, and inclusion such as:

- Social change activists or nonprofit leaders who have developed effective partnerships across sectors or implemented collaborative community-building initiatives that have demonstrably reduced discrimination against marginalized communities and affirmed human dignity using innovative programs and methods, such as social media, to reach and affect larger audiences;
- Thought leaders who have produced influential works on inclusion, social justice and community-building that have significantly transformed cultural frameworks or narratives, or who have demonstrated by their own example significant social and moral courage and exemplary leadership in standing up for the rights and wellbeing of marginalized and vulnerable communities;
- Policymakers who have successfully implemented significant inclusion, diversity and social justice initiatives across sectors or provided exceptional leadership in championing inclusiveness in community and educational settings;
- Institution builders who have led and implemented significant inclusive community- building or collaborative social justice and ally-building institutional initiatives in academic (school or university) or practice (community or nonprofit) settings.
