The Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science (Swedish: Skytteanska priset) was established in 1995 by the Johan Skytte Foundation at Uppsala University. The foundation itself goes back to the donation in 1622 from Johan Skytte (1577-1645), politician and chancellor of the university, which established the Skyttean professorship of Eloquence and Government. The prize, 500,000 Swedish kronor (approximately $70,000) is to be given "to the scholar who in the view of the Foundation has made the most valuable contribution to political science".
