Each year, the WISE Awards recognizes and promotes six innovative projects that address global education challenges and transforming communities. The selected projects are models of excellence that serve as an inspiration for others to improve education through innovation and creative action.

The Prize:

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.

The ideal project would be an ongoing, innovative and impactful education initiative that:

  1. Has an excellent record of proven success.
  2. Is financially sustainable.
  3. Has a clear plan indicating the project’s future objectives and future development.
  4. Is scalable.
  5. Is replicable in other contexts and regions of the world.
  6. Has a clear understanding and knowledge of:
    • Its innovative nature.
    • Its distinctiveness within its sphere of action.
