Bestowed by the Kellogg Institute’s Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity, the award recognizes individuals or organizations that stand in solidarity with those in deepest need. Awardees learn from those they serve, working together with them as they become agents of their own change.
More specifically, Notre Dame Award recipients are honored for substantial contribution to the promotion of international human development through research, practice, public service, or philanthropy.
In giving these awards, the Ford Program both celebrates the leadership and dedication of the awardees and bears witness to the many development challenges faced by the communities they serve.
