Source: Varkey GEMS Foundation
Program: THE GLOBAL TEACHER PRIZE (One Teacher/$1 Million)
Eligibility: Applicants of the prestigious Global Teacher Prize will be judged
based on a rigorous set of criteria aimed to identify an
extraordinary teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to
the profession. The Academy will look for evidence of:

  •  Recognition of a teacher's achievements in the classroom
    and beyond from pupils, colleagues, head-teachers or members of the
    wider community.


  •  Preparing children to be global citizens in a world where
    they will encounter people from many different religions, cultures
    and nationalities.

  •  Employing innovative and effective instructional
    practices and achieving demonstrable student learning outcomes in
    the classroom.


  •  Developing and sharing innovative thought leadership that
    has improved access to quality teaching and education for children
    of all backgrounds.

  •  Contributing to public debates on raising the bar of the
    teaching profession, whether through writing articles, blogs, media
    participation, social media campaigns, events or conferences.


  •  Accomplishments beyond the classroom that provide unique
    and distinguished models of excellence for the teaching

  •  Encouraging others to join the teaching profession.


Help us find one exceptional educator who deserves to be
recognized around the world.

The Global Teacher Prize is an annual one million dollar award
from the Varkey GEMS Foundation to be given to a super-special
teacher. One innovative and caring teacher who has made an
inspirational impact on their students and their community will
receive the reward of a lifetime. If you’re a teacher
currently teaching children in a compulsory setting or between the
ages 5-18, you can apply today. If you know a teacher who deserves
