Inspiring teachers, you can now apply for the US$1Million Global Teacher Prize 2023 award

The prize is open to working teachers from around the world who teach children that are in compulsory schooling or are between the ages of five and eighteen  

Dubai, May 18, 2023: Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize 2023, organised in collaboration with UNESCO and in strategic partnership with Dubai Cares, is inviting ‘Inspiring teachers’ to apply for the $1 million (Dhs3.67 million) award. 

The prize is open to working teachers who teach children that are in compulsory schooling or are between the ages of five and 18. Teachers who teach children age 4+ in an Early Years government-recognised curriculum are also eligible, as are teachers who teach on a part-time basis, and teachers of online courses.  

Teachers must spend at least 10 hours per week teaching and plan to remain in the profession for the next five years.  It is open to teachers in every kind of school and, subject to local laws, in every country in the world.   

Teachers applying for the Global Teacher Prize will be assessed on teaching practices, how they innovate to address local challenges, achieve demonstrable learning outcomes, impact the community beyond the classroom, help children become global citizens, improve the teaching profession and gain recognition from external bodies.  

Sunny Varkey, Founder of the Global Teacher Prize and Chairman of the Varkey Foundation, says, “The Global Teacher Prize was launched to highlight the importance of education in tackling the great challenges ahead – from climate change to growing inequality to global pandemics. I urge inspiring teachers all around the world to apply for this year’s edition.” The award is now in its eighth year. 

The prize will be narrowed down to a Top 50 shortlist and Top 10 finalists to be announced later in the year, helping to raise the bar of respect for the teaching profession.  

The winner will be chosen from the top 10 finalists by the Global Teacher Prize Academy made up of prominent individuals and will be announced later this year.  

If teachers are being nominated, the person nominating them will write a brief description online explaining why. The teacher being nominated will then be sent an email letting them know they have been nominated and inviting them to apply for the prize.  

Applicants can apply in English, Mandarin, Arabic, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.   

Closing date for applications is May 28, 2023.
