The Global Teacher Prize is an annual $1 million award from the Varkey Foundation given to an innovative and caring teacher who has made an inspirational impact on his or her students and community. Judges will look for evidence of employing innovation and effective instructional practices that are replicable and scalable to influence the quality of education globally, accomplishments beyond the classroom that provide models of excellence for the teaching profession, encouragement of teachers to remain in the teaching profession and others to join the teaching profession, preparation of children to be global citizens, third-party recognition of their achievements in the classroom and beyond, and demonstration of student learning outcomes in the classroom. Anyone can nominate a teacher who is at least 18 years old at the time of entry and teaches or provides educational support to students between the ages of five and 18 in a compulsory setting. Nominated teachers must then submit an application. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
Deadline: October 14, 2016, for applications
