Convergence and the UBS Optimus Foundation have joined forces to launch the Tertiary Education Financing prize to identify solutions that provide inclusive, fair, and affordable financing to students in tertiary education in low- and lower-middle-income countries.
The prize will identify the best student financing solutions in the market that are scalable and contribute to greatly increasing funding for tertiary education, so that more young people in emerging markets have access to high-quality education in areas that will have good employment opportunities in the future.
Applications are now open for the Tertiary Education Financing prize and will be accepted on a rolling basis until October 24, 2022.
