For the 2016-2017 cycle, the Lipman Family Prize received applications from 115+ organizations dedicated to a range of global causes including economic development, education, environmental sustainability, gender equality, healthcare, human rights, food security, legal aid, safe water, poverty alleviation and workers rights.
The three honorees below were chosen after rigorous evaluation by a committee of faculty, students and staff spanning across the University. As always, we value building relationships with our honorees and are passionate about getting to know these change-makers around the world.
The work of all three honorees was celebrated at our 6th Lipman Family Prize Award Ceremony on April 28, 2017. Philadelphia-based Women Against Abuse took home the winning cash prize.
