THE HIETT PRIZE IN THE HUMANITIES

Celebrating minds of extraordinary promise

The Hiett Prize in the Humanities is an annual award aimed at identifying candidates who are in the early stages of careers devoted to the humanities and whose work shows extraordinary promise. The opposite of a lifetime achievement award, the Hiett Prize seeks to encourage future leaders in the humanities by recognizing their early accomplishment and their potential and assisting their ongoing work through a cash award of $50,000. The Hiett Prize was endowed by Kim Hiett Jordan, a Lifetime Board Member of the Dallas Institute, to honor her parents, who inspired in her a lifelong love of learning.

Because of the pandemic, this year’s prize will be awarded during on online “gala” that will feature the 2020 winner in a conversation with past Hiett winners that will touch on the progress of their work since receiving the award and will also highlight the crucial role of the humanities in culture today.
