The Sunhak Peace Prize (선학평화상, 鮮鶴平和賞) annually awards individuals or organizations that contributed to peace.
The Secretariat's office sends out candidate nomination letters to the over 1,000 members of the Recommendation Committee worldwide, made up of internationally recognized individuals in their respective peace-related fields, who may then nominate 1 candidate each. Upon receiving the nominations, research is conducted on the achievements of each candidate, then reviewed through partial and full evaluation meetings, whereby the list of candidates is narrowed down to a few candidates, and recommended to the Sunhak Peace Prize Committee. Afterwards the Sunhak Peace Prize Committee goes through a rigorous screening process and selects the final laureate.
The laureate is awarded with a certificate, a medal, and US 1 million dollars.
