Each year, the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), an initiative of the QATAR FOUNDATION; identifies, showcases and promotes 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.
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.
The 2016 WISE Awards will celebrate six innovative educational projects for their positive contribution to education and society. WISE seeks to share best practices worldwide and inspire others to spark change in education. The WISE Awards thus highlight today’s most innovative solutions that are addressing major challenges in education.
Project representatives from any region, sector or education level are encouraged to submit their application to demonstrate the quality and impact of their activities. Whether you are involved in a project that creates new opportunities for lifelong learning, increases access to quality education or designs innovative educational tools and technologies, WISE invites you to apply for the 2016 WISE Awards.
The submission of applications and nominations for the 2016 WISE Awards remains open until January 15, 2016.
