The Princess of Asturias Foundation is a non-profit private institution whose essential aims are to contribute to extolling and promoting those scientific, cultural and humanistic values that form part of the universal heritage of humanity and to consolidate the existing links between the Principality of Asturias and the title traditionally held by the heirs to the Crown of Spain.
From the Foundation’s creation in 1980, King Felipe VI served as Honorary President until his proclamation as King of Spain on 19th June 2014. Following this date, HRH Leonor de Borbón y Ortiz, Princess of Asturias, became Honorary President of this institution which annually convenes the Princess of Asturias Awards.
Aimed at rewarding the scientific, technical, cultural, social and humanitarian work carried out at an international level by individuals, institutions or groups of individuals or institutions, these awards are granted in eight categories: the Arts, Literature, Social Sciences, Communication and Humanities, Technical and Scientific Research, International Cooperation, Sports and Concord.
The deadline for submitting nominations is March 2, 2023.
