The Lindbergh Foundation Believes that Innovative Science and Technology Hold the Key to Addressing Humanity’s Environmental and Productivity Challenges

Lindbergh Award Nomination Guidelines

In their life encompassing aviation, exploration, conservation, the sciences, and the humanities, Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh developed a philosophy that: the preservation and enhancement of the quality of life on Earth is dependent upon the establishment and maintenance of a balance between our advancing technology and our natural environment. The Lindbergh Foundation was established in 1977 to further their vision of such a balance, and the Lindbergh Award program is one of the ways the Foundation pursues this mission. Each year, this award recognizes an individual(s) for significant contributions over many years to a technology/nature balance. It is presented at a special event usually scheduled in May. The Corporate Award or Balance honors corporations or organizations whose business practices demonstrate a commitment to fostering our environment.
