The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of four 2012 Bradley Prizes will be awarded to Edwin J. Feulner, president of The Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.

The award will be presented to Feulner during a ceremony to be held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington on Thursday, June 7.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

"Ed Feulner has elevated the influence of conservative research institutions since co-founding The Heritage Foundation in 1973 and serving as its president since 1977," said Michael W. Grebe, Bradley Foundation president and chief executive officer.  "Under his guidance, The Heritage Foundation has become a bastion of ideas that are an integral part of the national conversation and that have shaped public policy."

Feulner received his Ph.D. from The University of Edinburgh in Scotland, his M.B.A. from the Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania, and his B.S. from Regis University in Denver.  In 1989, President Ronald Reagan awarded Feulner The Presidential Citizens Medal.  Forbes magazine named Feulner one of the "Seven Most Powerful Conservatives in Washington."
