Each year, the Foundation presents the Boris Nemtsov Prize for Courage to a person who is particularly committed to fighting for freedom of expression and helping those who are persecuted on political, racial, or religious grounds. Public figures, journalists, and artists are all eligible to receive this prize. Since 2016 the Prize recipients were Volodymyr Zelensky, Alexei Navalny, Konstantin Kotov, Nadezhda Mityushkina, Ildar Dadin, and Lev Schlossberg.
