Nominations Sought for Education Grawemeyer Award
Deadline: April 30, 2009 (Nomination Letter)

The Grawemeyer Awards at the University of Louisville are annual $200,000 prizes given in the fields of music, political science, psychology, education, and religion. Created to help make the world a better place, these annual awards accept nominations from around the world.

The Education Grawemeyer Award is designed to stimulate the dissemination, public scrutiny, and implementation of ideas that have potential to bring about significant improvement in educational practice and advances in educational attainment. The award is intended not only to reward the individuals responsible, but also to draw attention to their ideas, proposals, or achievements. The award is designed to recognize a specific recent achievement rather than a lifetime of accomplishment.

The program seeks entries of ideas, policy proposals, technological advances, program initiatives, and research reports that present a well-articulated approach to the advancement of teaching and learning. Nominations will be judged on the basis of originality, creativity, feasibility, and scope of potential applicability. Ideas or achievements must have been presented or published in the recent past.

The awards program invites nominations from around the world by professional educators, educational institutions and organizations, and editors and publishers of journals, books, and software. Self-nominations will not be considered. Nominees may be individuals or nonprofit organizations.

The $200,000 prize will be made in five annual installments of $40,000.
