Now in its eighth year, the Lipman Family Prize received applications from over 120 organizations dedicated to a range of global causes including economic development, education, environmental sustainability, financial services, gender equality, health care, human rights, food security, legal aid, 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.
