Nominations Invited for 2012 International Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize for the Alleviation of Human Suffering

March 19, 2011

The $1.5 million Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize is awarded annually to an organization making extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering anywhere in the world.

Nominations are invited from throughout the international community. Nominees must be established, non-governmental, publicly supported charitable organizations. Nominees must be legally established for at least five years (established prior to January 2006), and must have an operating budget (expenditures) greater than $500,000. Individuals are not eligible for nomination.

The nominator should have direct knowledge of the nominated organization’s work. The nominator may not be an officer or employee, or any other individual receiving remuneration for their services from the nominated organization. Board members may nominate providing they receive no payment for their service. The nominator may not be a family member of an officer or employee of the nominated organization.

Since the prize is not a grant, nomination materials should emphasize the organization’s accomplishments rather than future goals. Both historic and recent performance should be addressed.

Suggested criteria to consider in describing a nominee’s work include extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering, established record of achievement, innovation in program design, organizational capacity and administrative efficiency, and demonstration of long-term impact.

This year, for the first time, the nomination process will be conducted entirely online. Online nominations will be accepted from throughout the international community from March 12 to April 29, 2011. Nominators must create an account and upload their signed nomination letter (in English) at the Hilton Prize Web site. The nominated organization will then be contacted by email directly by the foundation and asked to provide supporting materials.
