Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize

Deadline: 15 May 2023
Open to: Nominations for leaders from any country and discipline
Benefits: $50,000 grant money and full program benefits


The Prizes are awarded annually to outstanding leaders who demonstrate the willingness and capacity to address the complexity of 21st-century challenges in innovative, risk-taking, and ethical ways, and whose work is global in aspiration or implication and is rooted in universal values. The prize is built on the belief that great leadership is not bound by geography or discipline. Prize winners are honored not only for what they have already accomplished but for their commitment and capacity to continue seeking the kinds of positive change society demands.

In short: Global Leaders and Global Solutions for Global Problems!


Anyone, anywhere—except for prize jurors—can nominate a leader from any country and from any discipline e.g. politicians, statesmen, scientists, educators, social entrepreneurs, CEOs, environmentalists, artists, religious and military figures, and others. Candidates are nominated through an open, online process and ultimately selected by a jury of international leaders.


In 2023, through the generous support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson will award three prizes. Each winner will be celebrated by their peers, receive an unrestricted grant of $50,000, and be invited to join the Tällberg network of global leaders. Indeed, the ongoing engagement with other leaders working for positive change at the global level is an integral element of the Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize.
