Gaddafi made an initial grant of ten million US$ to the Swiss-based foundation North-South which later administered the prize. The sum of the prize money was US$250,000 (in case of several recipients the prize money was shared).
The prize was discontinued in 2011, after Gaddafi's overthrow during the Libyan civil war.
