At $2 million, the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize is the world’s largest annual humanitarian award presented to a nonprofit organization.
Inaugurated in 1996, as a tribute to Conrad N. Hilton’s lifetime of international humanitarian efforts, the annual award is presented to a nonprofit organization judged to have made exemplary and extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering. Following initial background and legal review, the Hilton Humanitarian Prize staff conducts an extensive evaluation of the candidates, which is then submitted to an independent, international jury that makes the final selection.
Conrad, N. Hilton Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize. The nomination period will close on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, at 11
:59 p.m. PDT.
