Details

The WISE Prize for Education recognizes an individual or a team for an outstanding contribution to education at any level. The WISE Prize for Education is the first distinction of its kind to recognize an individual or a team of up to six people for an outstanding, world-class contribution to education. The WISE Prize for Education Laureates is inspiring role models for all those concerned with building the future of education as the foundation for a more secure, prosperous, and sustainable world.

The World Innovation Summit for Education was established by Qatar Foundation in 2009 under the leadership of its Chairperson, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. WISE is an international, multi-sectoral platform for creative, evidence-based thinking, debate, and purposeful action in education. Through the biennial summit, collaborative research and a range of on-going programs, WISE is a global reference in new approaches to education.

Besides celebrating outstanding education leaders, the WISE Prize also supports their work in shaping the future of education. Hence, the Laureate(s) will receive tailored support over two years to grow their initiative further and scale their impact.
