Award for Excellence


Mary Byron Project’s 20th Anniversary Celebrating Solutions “Award for Excellence"

Since its inception, the Mary Byron Project’s Celebrating Solutions and Roth Awards have honored innovative programs that demonstrate promise in ending the generational cycle of intimate partner violence. Programs that served as models for the nation were selected and awarded $10,000 in recognition of their pioneering efforts. Since 2003, 67 programs have received this prestigious honor.

Now, each of those programs is invited to apply for the Mary Byron Project’s final Celebrating Solutions Award, the “Award for Excellence”.

This will be bestowed upon the program that has best continued its legacy of innovation and inspiration in ending intimate partner violence, and will come with a $20,000 prize, in honor of the Mary Byron Project’s 20th Anniversary.

Eligibility criteria:

  • The program’s primary focus must address the issue of intimate partner violence.
  • The nominated program, or the agency/organization, must have previously received a Celebrating Solutions or Roth Award, and since that time, continued to focus its energies and resources on ending intimate partner violence.
  • The program must be part of a non-profit 501(c) (3) or government agency.
