Rolex Awards for Enterprise 2021
For more than four decades, through the Rolex Awards for Enterprise, Rolex has supported exceptional individuals who have the courage and conviction to take on major challenges; men and women who have a spirit of enterprise, initiating extraordinary projects that make the world a better place.
Supporting exceptional individuals around the world
Created in 1976 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Oyster, the first waterproof watch and an important milestone in watchmaking, the Rolex Awards foster the values that underpin Rolex: quality, ingenuity, determination and, above all, the enterprising spirit that has driven the company since its beginning.
From the start, the Awards were designed to fill a void in corporate philanthropy by supporting exceptional individuals around the world, pioneers who had no or little access to traditional funding and were responding to major challenges with original and innovative projects that advance human knowledge and well-being.
The support given by Rolex to 150 Award winners since 1976 has had a catalytic impact and has in many cases transformed lives and communities. It has also stimulated new ways of thinking about common problems in areas as diverse as creating technologies that improved lives, saving endangered ecosystems, protecting the oceans, exploring new frontiers on the planet, or pioneering advances in science and health.
A unique legacy that keeps the world moving forward
The Awards continue to celebrate men and women who share the passion, vision and commitment to make the world a better place, and who embody the belief that anyone can change everything.
In 2021, Rolex will offer five Rolex Awards for Enterprise. Part of Rolex’s Perpetual Planet initiative, the Awards support individuals seeking solutions to humankind’s most pressing challenges.
Candidates can apply in five areas: science and health, applied technology, exploration, cultural heritage and the environment.
