Deadline for Applications

Crossposted from the Bronfman Prize

The Charles Bronfman Prize accepts nominations in all areas of humanitarian work across a broad spectrum of disciplines. Past recipients have distinguished themselves through their work in the fields of education, human rights, criminal justice, the environment and more.

Nominators from a wide variety of distinguished institutions around the world help to identify qualified candidates for the Prize. While most have pursued social impact through non-profit mechanisms, some Nominees have used other creative vehicles of change, such as B Corporations.


Candidates are presented for consideration by a Nominator with two supporting references. An internationally recognized panel of judges selects the Prize recipient(s) and bestows an award of $100,000 to be used at the recipient’s sole discretion.

We are looking for today’s Jewish heroes: next-generation leaders who have a vision for change that will significantly better the world, and who have created a mechanism for acting on that vision in ways that deliver measurable results. We evaluate that against the following criteria:

  • Nominees must be individuals or teams, not organizations. Specifically, we are interested in those who created the vision on which the organization/endeavor is founded.
  • Nominees must not have reached their 50th birthday by the close of the nomination period. There are no exceptions to this date.
  • Nominees must be next-generation leaders who have a vision for change that will better the world in a meaningful way.
  • Nominees must have created a mechanism for acting on their vision in ways that deliver measurable results.
  • Nominees have exhibited innovation, leadership, and impact in their chosen field.
  • Nominees must espouse Jewish values and demonstrate universal regard for humanity that will inspire and serve as a model for future generations.
