2021 Alexander Hamilton Award Dinner

Friday September 2021


John Paulson President, Paulson & Co.
Tim Scott U.S. Senator, South Carolina

On Friday, September 10, we were thrilled to welcome friends and guests in New York City to honor Senator Tim Scott and investor John Paulson at our 2021 Hamilton Award Dinner. 

Transcript of speeches: Senator Tim Scott (introduced by Shay Hawkins) and John Paulson (introduced by Eva Moskowitz)

The Alexander Hamilton Award was created to honor those individuals helping to foster the revitalization of our nation’s cities. We chose to name the award after Hamilton because, like the Manhattan Institute, he was a fervent proponent of commerce and civic life. Through the years, we have expanded the scope of the prize to celebrate leaders not just on the local level, but also at the state and federal levels, who have made remarkable things happen in the realms of public policy, culture, and philanthropy. We hope our celebration of these awardees encourages replication of their efforts.
