We recognize the brightest minds in education and build a community around them. A community that promotes collaboration, shares what works, and is as strong in research and testing as it is in practical application. That's why our prizes span two areas:
The theory of learning—science, psychology, statistics—that can help educators gain a more methodical understanding of their approaches.
The practice of learning—new methods, ways to make education more widespread—so we can champion techniques that work.
Each year, we award our laureates a gold medal, a cash prize of HK$15 million (shared equally for teams), and a project fund of HK$15 million to help them scale up their work.
We welcome all nominations; our process is open to everyone. You don’t need to be invited to nominate a team or individual for either the Education Research or Education Development prize.
