UNESCO announces the call for submissions for the 2023 UNESCO Award for Girls’ and Women’s Education on International Women’s Day.
Notwithstanding recent progress in realizing girls’ and women’s rights to education, the COVID-19 pandemic, conflict, and climate-related calamities are growing inequality.
UNESCO believes in the transformational power of education to help women and girls realize their full potential, advance gender equality, and establish just, equal, and inclusive communities.
- Governments of UNESCO Member States and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in official partnership with UNESCO are invited to nominate up to three individuals, institutions or organizations who have made strong, innovative contributions in favour of girls’ and women’s education.
- Interested candidates are invited to contact their country’s National Commission for UNESCO/Permanent Delegation to UNESCO, or an NGO in official partnership with UNESCO for more information.
- Nominated projects must be established and running for at least two years and show potential to be replicable and scalable.
The Prize awards US$ 50,000 annually to two laureates making outstanding efforts in favour of girls’ and women’s education.
Nominations must be submitted in English or French via an online platform, accessible only to National Commissions for UNESCO/Permanent Delegations to UNESCO and NGOs in official partnership with UNESCO.
