Each WISE Awards winning project will receive US$20,000, and will benefit from increased public interest through media exposure and other channels. The WISE Awards is not a grant scheme aimed at
supporting projects, nor is it intended to be a source of funding for new and untried ideas.
Any such applications or nominations will not be considered.

This new promotion of 2020 WISE Awards will identify, celebrate, and promote six innovative projects for their positive contribution to education and society. The Awards highlight initiatives found to be most creative and effective in finding solutions to education challenges at any level and in all environments. In bringing forward these models, WISE is helping build a network of recognized change-makers to inspire transformation and innovation in education.

Representatives of projects are invited to submit applications to demonstrate the nature and reach of their activities. Nominations of projects are also invited. Past winning projects have addressed a wide range of concerns and pursuits, including access to quality education, life-long learning opportunities, early childhood education, employment, civic education and education in emergency contexts.

– Has a clear plan indicating the project’s future objectives and future development
– Is scalable
– Is replicable in other contexts and regions of the world

The 2020 WISE Awards submission procedure accepts both applications and nominations.

lifelong learning.

Finally, projects from any part of the world can apply or be nominated for the WISE Awards.

However, WISE will contact nominated projects if they are shortlisted for the Pre-Jury evaluation.
