2024 Yidan Prize nominations are now open: Shaping the future through education

Nominations are open until 31 March 2024!

The Yidan Prize recognizes the brightest minds in education and creates a community that promotes collaboration and is as strong in research as it is in practical application. The prize covers two major areas:

  1. Education Research
    The theory of learning—science, psychology, statistics—that can help educators gain a more methodical understanding of their approaches.
  2. Education Development
    The practice of learning—new methods, ways to make education more widespread—so we can champion techniques that work.

Each year, laureates are awarded 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.

All nominations are welcome; the 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. You can nominate an individual, a team of up to three members, or even yourself. If you’re nominating someone else or a team, you’ll need at least two and up to five recommendation letters. If you are nominating yourself, you’ll need at least three recommendation letters.
