Institutionalized under Executive Order 498 issued by President Corazon C. Aquino, the biennial Gawad ng Pangulo Awards aims to honor and recognize overseas Filipinos and foreign individuals who have selflessly supported relief, rehabilitation and development programs in the home country.
There are four (4) award categories:
- Lingkod sa Kapwa Pilipino (Linkapil) Award
- Kaanib ng Bayan Award
- Banaag Award
- Pamana ng Pilipino Award
For rules on filling of nomination, nomination forms and other information about the awards, you may visitwww.presidentialawards.gov.ph or like the official Facebook page of Gawad Pangulo https://www.facebook.com/gawadpangulofor more updates and announcements.
Duly completed nomination forms with all necessary attachments must be submitted to the Philippine Embassy in Paris, Attention: Vice Consul André ESTANISLAO, by 31 April 2014. The Awards Committee, composed of the Ambassador, all officers of the Embassy and a representative from the Filipino community (to be elected in the next Filipino community leaders’ meeting), will deliberate and endorse to the CFO Technical Committee.
Nominations submitted to the Embassy will still undergo this screening process. Submission of nominations is not an automatic precursor for qualification for the award.
Thank you very much.
