On 8 March, International Women’s Day, UNESCO opens the call for nominations for the second edition of the UNESCO Prize for Girls’ and Women’s Education.
Funded by the Government of the People’s Republic of China, the Prize rewards innovative and outstanding projects by individuals, institutions and organizations that are advancing girls’ and women’s education. Laureates receive USD 50,000.
Last year, the Directorate of Early Childhood Education of the Ministry of Education and Culture from the Republic of Indonesia and the Female Students Network Trust from Zimbabwe were recognized for their innovative projects.
Governments of all Member States as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in official partnership with UNESCO can nominate up to three individuals, institutions or organizations. Nominations must be submitted online in English or French and need to focus on a specific project or programme.
