United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO is now accepting submissions for the 2018 Prize for Girls’ and Women’s Education. It carries a reward of Fifty Thousand US Dollars ($50,000).

UNESCO Prize for Girls and Women Education

On International Women’s Day, UNESCO has launched the call for nominations for the 2018 UNESCO Prize for Girls’ and Women’s Education.

Governments of UNESCO Member States and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in official partnership with UNESCO are now invited to nominate up to three individuals, institutions or organizations who have made outstanding contributions in favour of girls’ and women’s education.

Funded by the Government of the People’s Republic of China, the Prize is conferred annually to two laureates and consists of an award of USD 50,000 each to help further their work in the area of girls’ and women’s education. The Director-General of UNESCO awarded the Prize for the first time in 2016.

Established by UNESCO’s Executive Board, the Prize directly contributes to the attainment of the 2030 Sustainable Development agenda, particularly SDG goals 4 on education and 5 on gender equality. It also supports UNESCO’s global priorities included in the Medium-term Strategy 2014-2021 and the Gender Equality Action Plan 2014-2021 (GEAP II).
