The Notre Dame Prize for Distinguished Public Service in Latin America

The Notre Dame Prize for Distinguished Public Service in Latin America was awarded annually from 2000 to 2012 to recognize the efforts of visionary leaders to enhance the region’s welfare. Celebrating the significant role public figures play in strengthening democracy and improving the well being of the citizenry, the award aimed to draw hemisphere-wide attention to outstanding leadership in public service.

The Notre Dame Prize for Distinguished Public Service in Latin America was presented to Latin Americans who, in one or more countries of the region demonstrated visionary leadership, distinction in public service, and advancement of the well being of the citizens of Latin America. Award recipients furthered the public good in government, nongovernmental organizations, religion, education, the media, or other significant civic involvement.

Funded by a grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation and administered by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame, the award included a cash prize of $15,000 with a matching amount given to a Latin American charitable organization recommended by the laureate. The Prize was formally awarded at a public ceremony, typically in the laureate’s country of residence, and the Prize laureate typically gave a major public address at Notre Dame.
