The Wharton Award

The Wharton award was created in 2007 to honor the outstanding work of Dr. Clifton R. Wharton, Jr, in the areas of philanthropy, higher education, business and public policy. Dr. Wharton has been a Black pioneer in four different fields-philanthropy, foreign economic development, higher education and business. The award is conferred each year by the Emerging Markets Program at Cornell University to a person who has distinguished him-or her-self with “Outstanding Service, Leadership and Contribution to Economic Progress in Emerging Markets.”
