Nominations Now Being Accepted for The 2018 Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education

NEW YORK – The nomination window opened today for the 2018 Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education, which honors education innovation, and has become one of the most prestigious awards in education since its founding in 1988. The Prize is administered through a partnership between The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Family Foundation, McGraw-Hill Education and Arizona State University.
The public will have the opportunity to submit nominations by visiting McGrawPrize.com until November 17, 2017.

Several changes have been made to the McGraw Prize categories for 2018:

  • Nominations for the McGraw Prize will be accepted in three categories: Pre-K–12 Education, Higher Education and a new Learning Science Research
  • Nominees for the Learning Science Research category improve educational outcomes through learning science research, and are recognized for their sustained, long-term contributions to research that advances our knowledge and understanding of learning in diverse contexts. Learning science includes psychology, cognitive and neuroscience, data science and other disciplines that examine how people learn and how they can learn more effectively.
  • The former U.S. K-12 Education category has been expanded to include Pre-K in 2018, and the former “International Education” category has been rolled into the Pre-K–12 Education and Higher Education categories, which now accept nominees from around the world.

The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education annually recognizes outstanding individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education through new approaches and whose accomplishments are making a difference today. Honorees receive an award of $50,000 and a bronze sculpture designed by students from Arizona State University. They also will be honored at an evening reception during the ASU+GSV Summit in San Diego, Calif., which will be held April 16-18, 2018.
