The International Women of Courage Award , in German as International Prize for Women of Courage is a year from the United States Department of State awarded to women worldwide who for human and women's rights have done a remarkable job.

The award was launched in 2007 on March 8th, International Women's Day . The initiator was the then Secretary of State of the USA, Condoleezza Rice . The aim of the award is to recognize women who have demonstrated extraordinary courage, strength, and leadership to improve the lives of others. The award is an opportunity to attract international attention and support to women who often risked their lives to improve their communities. It aims to reward women who have made a fundamental difference in the lives of women around the world. They are recognized for their courageous and selfless efforts for human rights, for equal rights for women and for social progress. This is the only foreign ministry award that honors outstanding women from around the world.

There is no application process for this award. Instead, the candidates are nominated by employees of the US embassies and non-governmental organizations from around the world. The winners are elected by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The prizes will be presented in a ceremony by the President's wife . In addition to the award ceremony in the USA, the winners will take part in an exchange program where they will meet like-minded people from the USA.
