The James Robert Brudner Memorial Prize and Lecture at Yale University celebrates lifetime accomplishment and world-class scholarly contributions in the field of lesbian and gay studies. It is bestowed annually by the Fund for Lesbian and Gay Studies at Yale. Recipients receive a cash prize and give a public lecture on the Yale campus in New Haven, Connecticut.

The prize is named for city planner, musician, and photographer James Brudner (1961-1998), a member of the Yale College class of 1983. Brudner died of AIDS-related illness on September 18, 1998. Through his will he established the prize and lecture as "a perpetual annual prize for scholarship in the history, culture, anthropology, biology, etiology, or literature of gay men and lesbians or related fields, or for advancing the understanding of homosexuality as a phenomenon, or the tolerance of gay men and lesbians in society."
