The WISE Initiative is currently accepting nominations for the WISE Prize for Education. This competition provides a lucrative cash prize for someone who is making a valuable contribution toward education. Individuals and groups of up to six people can be nominated for the award with the final recipient chosen by a committee. Typically, multiple awards are given out with different cash prizes. In the past, the gold prize winner has received a sum of $500,000 to further their work. Nomination forms are available at the WISE Initiative’s official website. From the initial applications, 15 semi-finalists will be selected by the WISE Prize Committee for further consideration. Winners are usually announced at the annual WISE Summit, held in November of every year.
