Gawad Tanglaw ng Lahi
Ateneo de Manila University created the Tanglaw ng Lahi Award to single out those who have dedicated their life’s work to the pursuit of Filipinism and the Filipino identity through any of the channels of culture. As such, the award recognizes the contribution of any individual or organization, regardless of race, creed, or political affiliation, so long as he/she/it has succeeded in steering the national consciousness towards a clarification, development and enhancement of the essential Filipino image.
Since this award holds up the recipient to public honor and recognition by Ateneo de Manila University, the personal integrity and moral qualities of the honoree should also be considered, as honorees of the university are meant to be held up as models in their own lines of endeavor.
