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 raises the status of education by giving it similar prestige enjoyed in other areas for which international recognition exists --such as literature, peace, and economics. It carries a $500,000 USD cash prize.

Eligibility: Eligible nominees will have demonstrated achievements that have had a lasting impact upon education at any level through inspiring and visionary approaches. Nominations are strictly confidential.

Note: If institutional nomination is sought (individuals may also nominate candidates outside of the institutional process), please submit a candidate suggestion form by the internal deadline to recommend a candidate to the President’s Advisory Committee on Awards, Honours and Prizes. For more information, please contact awards@sfu.ca.
