Established in 2011 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation, the WISE Prize for Education raises the status of education by giving it similar prestige enjoyed in other areas for which international recognition exists, such as literature, peace and economics.

The World Innovation Summit for Education was established by Qatar Foundation in 2009 under the leadership of its Chairperson, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. WISE is an international, multi-sectoral platform for creative, evidence-based thinking, debate, and purposeful action in education. Through the biennial summit, collaborative research and a range of on-going programs, WISE is a global reference in new approaches to education.

Besides celebrating outstanding education leaders, the WISE Prize also supports their work in shaping the future of education. Hence, the Laureate(s) will receive tailored support over two years to grow their initiative further and scale their impact.
