The McGraw Prize in Education annually celebrates innovation in education by recognizing outstanding individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education and whose accomplishments are making a difference today. Honorees are chosen by a distinguished panel of judges made up of thoughtful and influential members in the international educational community. Each winner receives a gift of $50,000 and a bronze sculpture. The Prize will recognize individuals and their efforts to elevate human potential in education in three categories: Pre-K-12 Education, Higher Education, and Learning Science Research.
In 1988, the McGraw-Hill Research Foundation first awarded The Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education. Responsibility for the Prize changed in 2015 when McGraw-Hill Education partnered with Arizona State University (ASU) to further Mr. McGraw’s lifelong commitment to education.
At McGraw-Hill Education, we believe that our contribution to unlocking a brighter future lies within the application of our deep understanding of how learning happens and how the mind develops. Our vision is to unlock the full potential of each learner. To that end, we support organizations, projects, and activities that are advancing international education and knowledge in the 21st Century. Today McGraw-Hill Education is partnering with Arizona State University to educate, inform, and raise awareness about:
Arizona State University has developed a new model for the American Research University, creating an institution that is committed to excellence, access, and impact. ASU measures itself by those it includes, not by those it excludes. ASU pursues research that contributes to the public good, and ASU assumes major responsibility for the economic, social, and cultural vitality of the communities that surround it. Under the direction of its president Dr. Michael Crow, ASU has emerged as one of the most progressive international education institutions worldwide.
Started in 2010 with a collaboration between Arizona State University and Global Silicon Valley (GSV), the Annual ASU GSV Education Innovation Summit is the industry catalyst for elevating dialogue and building community around raising educational outcomes through scaled innovation. The ASU GSV Summit continues to bring together the most impactful people from diverse constituencies: entrepreneurs, business leaders, educators, policymakers, philanthropists, leading district superintendents and principals, and university leaders to create partnerships, explore solutions and shape the future of learning.
