Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize

Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize: The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation invites nominations for the 2007 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 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.

Nominated organizations must have an operating budget larger than $500,000.

Nominations must be received or postmarked by 6 November 2006.
