      Recognizing Innovative and Transformative Projects

      Each year, the WISE Awards identify, showcase and promote innovative educational projects that are having a transformative impact on societies and education. Since 2009, WISE has received thousands of applications that have emerged from a wide variety of sectors and from over 130 countries. The winning projects constitute a growing pool of expertise and diverse sound educational practices.

      Selecting the Award Winners

      Following a global call for project, a Pre-Jury composed of education experts assesses the submissions to select the Finalists. Following this, a Jury bringing together leading personalities from the education world chooses the six Award winning projects. Winners receive global visibility along with a prize of $20,000 (US) and are celebrated at the annual WISE Summit Gala Dinner.

      The WISE Awards run in parallel with the other WISE Programs such as the WISE Prize for Education.

      Support and Collaboration
