About the program:
Each year, the WISE Awards recognize and promote six successful innovative projects that are addressing global educational challenges. Since 2009, WISE has received more than 2,850 applications from over 150 countries.

In bringing forward these models, WISE is helping build a network of recognized change-makers to inspire change in education.
