The World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), an initiative of Qatar Foundation, has opened submissions for the WISE Awards 2019.

Each year, the WISE Awards recognize innovative and impactful initiatives that address today’s most urgent education challenges. Past projects have addressed a number of diverse topic areas related to global education, including access and inclusion, design and ecosystems, digital and multimedia, society and workforce, and youth employment.

Submissions are judged according to strict criteria. They must show innovation, have a clear development plan, and be financially stable, scalable, and replicable. They must also demonstrate a transformative impact on individuals, communities, and society.

During 2019, a panel of independent judges will select 12 projects as WISE Awards finalists, who will then be evaluated, before the six winning projects are selected by a panel of judges.

The finalists and winners gain global visibility and opportunities to collaborate via various platforms, including WISE’s biennial summit and its events across the world, and through WISE communications and publications. They also receive a $20,000 prize. Applications and nominations can be submitted at from today until 1pm GMT on January 15, 2019.
