Who’s shaping the future of education?
Tell us about these changemakers, and we could help them on their way. The Yidan Prize is the world’s highest education accolade. Each year, we award the Yidan Prize to individuals or teams of up to three members in two areas: Education Research and Education Development.
Our prizes are designed for impact: Yidan Prize laureates receive a project fund of HK$15 million over three years, helping them scale up their work, as well as a gold medal, and a cash prize of HK$15 million (shared equally for teams). Laureates also join our Council of Luminaries, using their collective voice and wisdom to shape tomorrow’s education. We recognize changemakers already making an impact, and provide them with resources to amplify their reach.
