Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize

The $1.5 million (U.S.) Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize is awarded annually to an organization making extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering anywhere in the world. Nominations are sought from throughout the international community and will close APRIL 30, 2010. An independent international panel of jurors will make the final selection; the award recipient will be announced in the spring of 2011.
Nominee Eligibility
  • Nominees must be organizations, not individuals.
  • Nominees must be established, non-governmental, publicly supported charitable organizations. U.S. Internal Revenue Service tax-exempt status—or the equivalent for international organizations—will determine eligibility. (International nominees will be contacted by the Foundation for appropriate documentation.)
  • Nominees must be legally established for at least five years (established prior to January 2005) in order to be considered.
  • Nominees must have an operating budget (expenditures) greater than U.S. $500,000 in their most recent (audited fiscal) year of operation.
  • An organization that has received a single grant of $1.5 million or more from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation must wait 3 years before being eligible for nomination.
