WISE Prize For Practitioners In Education

WISE is an international platform for creative thinking, debate, and purposeful action. Through both the biennial summit and a range of ongoing programs WISE is promoting innovation and building the future of education through collaboration.

The WISE Prize for Education is the first distinction of its kind to recognise an individual or a team for an outstanding, world-class contribution to education.

The WISE Prize for Education Laureate announced at the global biennial summit’s Opening Plenary Session, receives the WISE Prize medal and $500,000.

Potential WISE Prize for Education candidates can be researchers, education practitioners, policymakers, organisation 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.

Candidates must be nominated by an individual and not an organisation. The nominator could be working with the nominee, part of their community, one of the nominee’s end beneficiaries, or have no relationship with the nominee.

The WISE Prize for Education recognises an individual or a team for an outstanding contribution to education. The achievements of the nominated individual or team should have had a significant and lasting impact on education at any level and should demonstrate an inspiring and visionary approach.

The deadline is on Monday 1st February 2021.
