Awards to recognize USA, Canada, or International Jewish individuals to recognize exceptional leadership and humanitarian accomplishments. Nominations are welcome on behalf of individuals under age 50 who have made a significant, measurable, and positive global impact. The Charles Bronfman Prize seeks to honor young humanitarian leaders and provide inspiration to the next generations.

The Charles Bronfman Prize accepts nominations in all areas of humanitarian work across a broad spectrum of disciplines. The Charles Bronfman Prize seeks to honor today’s Jewish heroes: next-generation leaders under the age of 50 who have a vision for change that will better the world in a meaningful way, who have created a mechanism for acting on that vision, and have delivered measurable results. Past recipients have distinguished themselves through their work in the environment, humanitarian relief, human rights, medical education, public education, criminal justice, storytelling, and more.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Awards are attended 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.

Criteria:
- Nominees must be individuals or teams, not organizations. Specifically, the Award is 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 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.

Nominees should self-define as being Jewish.

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.

Nominees cannot self-nominate.

All nominations are due on August 18, 2021. Nominations must be received no later than the close of business on the final day of the nomination period.
