Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize (USA)

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation invites nominations for the 2008 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize for organizations that have made extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering anywhere in the world.

The $1.5 million prize—the world’s largest humanitarian award—is presented annually to an established nonprofit, charitable, or non-governmental organization.  The prize is not a grant based on future goals, but an award for recent and historic accomplishments.  An independent international panel of jurors makes the final selection.  The 2007 award will be presented in August and the 2008 prize will be announced in the fall of 2008.

Nominated organizations must have an operating budget greater than U.S. $500,000; further instructions and eligibility requirements are available on the Hilton Foundation website, (select Nomination Process from the Humanitarian Prize & Conferences tab).  The nomination period for the 2008 prize begins August 1, 2007; nominations must be received or postmarked by November 6, 2007.
