On September 18, 2023, the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative announced the three Aurora Humanitarians who have been shortlisted for the 2024 Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity. The announcement was made at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) annual meeting in New York City. One of the 2024 Aurora Humanitarians will be named the next Aurora Prize Laureate at a Ceremony to take place in Los Angeles, California in May 2024. The 2024 Aurora Prize Laureate will receive a US $1,000,000 award together with a unique opportunity to continue the cycle of giving by helping people in need.
“I’m honored to represent here my acclaimed co-members, including Nobel Laureates, renowned humanitarians, business leaders, and former heads of state. Together, we faced the immense challenge of choosing just 3 Humanitarians from more than 700 submissions from 75 countries,” said Lord Ara Darzi, Chair of the Aurora Prize Selection Committee and Co-Director of the Institute of Global Health Innovation at Imperial College London.
