The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education celebrates innovation in education by recognizing outstanding individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education and whose accomplishments are making a difference today.

Since its creation in 1988, nearly 100 remarkable leaders in all fields of education have been recognized and celebrated, many of whom continue to play transformative roles today. In 2020, the McGraw Family Foundation announced the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education as the new home for the prize. Through this collaboration, the prize is creating a yearlong programming series to share ideas and insights from McGraw Prize winners with educators around the globe.
