Paris, France, April 21, 2023 — On International Women’s Day, UNESCO launched the call for nominations for the 2023 UNESCO Prize for Girls and Women’s Education. The Prize awards US$ 50,000 annually to two laureates making outstanding efforts in favor of girls and women’s education.

UNESCO said it believes in the transformative power of education to unlock the potential of women and girls, advance gender equality, and achieve just, equal, and inclusive societies.

So, UNESCO has invited the Governments of UNESCO Member States to nominate up to three individuals, institutions, or organizations who have made solid and innovative contributions in favor of girls’ and women’s education.

Interested candidates may contact their country’s National Commission for UNESCO or Permanent Delegation to UNESCO for nomination submission.

Nominations must meet the eligibility and selection criteria set by the Prize. In addition, nominated projects must be established and running for at least two years and show potential to be replicable and scalable. An independent International Jury of five experts will assess nominations based on the project’s potential for impact, innovation, and sustainability.

The submission deadline is May 19, 2023 (midnight, Paris time).

National Commissions for UNESCO and Permanent Delegations to UNESCO can submit the Nominations online in English or French on behalf of the candidates.

Based on the recommendations of the Jury, the Director-General of UNESCO will announce the 2023 laureates who will receive the award on October 11, 2023, as part of the “International Day of the Girl” celebrations.
