Awards

The George C. Marshall Foundation Award was established in 1997 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Marshall Plan. This award is presented to an individual who has made a significant contribution to foster international economic development and to establish, in Marshall’s words, “economic health in the world, without which there can be no political stability and no assured peace.”

The George C. Marshall Foundation Humanitarian Award is presented to an individual or an organization to recognize their significant humanitarian service, create public awareness of the accomplishments of the recipient individual or organization and to encourage others to emulate their good works.
