Eligibility: The WISE Prize for Education recognizes an individual or a team for an outstanding contribution to education at any level
WISE Prize for Education 2021
Established in 2011 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, the WISE Prize for Education is the first distinction of its kind to recognize an individual or a team for an outstanding, world-class contribution to education.
The WISE Prize for Education raises the status of education by giving it similar prestige to other areas for which international prizes exist –such as literature, peace, and economics.
Recognizing the potential in shaping the future of education
The WISE Prize for Education Laureates are inspiring role models for all those concerned with building the future of education as the foundation for a more secure, prosperous, and sustainable world.
Potential WISE Prize for Education candidates can be researchers, education practitioners, policymakers, organization leaders and can belong to any education sector such as early childhood education, K-12, higher education, vocational training, differently-abled development, informal education, distance-based learning, education technology and lifelong learning.
The WISE Prize Laureate is announced at the Opening Plenary Session of the global biennial summit and receives the WISE Prize for Education medal and $500,000 (US) cash fund dedicated to growing their initiative.
The Prize celebrates and shares the laureate’s vision in building the future of education by providing the Laureate(s) tailored support over two years to scale their impact.
