ABOUT THE HIETT PRIZE IN THE HUMANITIES

The Hiett Prize in the Humanities is an annual award of $50,000 aimed at identifying candidates who are ascending in a career devoted to the humanities and whose work shows extraordinary promise to have a significant impact on contemporary culture. Endowed by philanthropist Kim Hiett Jordan, the Hiett Prize was first awarded in 2005. Finalists are determined from a nationwide field of applicants, after which they will be considered by a select panel of judges. The Hiett Prize recipient’s achievements are celebrated and the prize is awarded at the annual luncheon.
