Deadline 18th October 2017
Every year, Hilton Foundation receive hundreds of nominations from around the world for the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize. Nominations are carefully vetted and reviewed through a rigorous process, and the final selection is made by an independent international panel of distinguished jurors.
The 2018 nomination period is now open through October 18, 2017. Below are the Prize nomination guidelines.
- Nominees must be organizations, not individuals.
- Nominees must be established, nongovernmental, publicly supported charitable organizations.

(International nominees will be contacted by the Foundation for appropriate documentation.)
- Nominees must be legally established for at least five years in order to be considered.
- Nominees must have audited financial statements and an operating budget (expenditures) greater than U.S. $750,000.
- 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 his or her 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.
- The nominator may not be the founder of the nominated organization.
