The Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize

The Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize is the world’s largest humanitarian award at $2 million. Established in 1996, it is given to an organization, anywhere in the world, judged to have made extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering—often operating at great risk, hardship or personal sacrifice. The Prize is not only intended to recognize and advance the efforts of the recipient organization, but also to call attention to the worldwide need for humanitarian aid and to encourage others to expand their support. Learn more about the prize on our main website.
