About Global Teacher Prize
The Varkey GEMS Foundation launched the Global Teacher Prize to celebrate the best teachers around the world, those who inspire their students and the communities around them. The Global Teacher Award seeks to do for education what the Nobel Prize has done for science, literature, and peace. The focus is to uplift the valuable contributions that teachers make every day to establish a flourishing global society.
Do you know a teacher worthy of recognition and celebration?
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 know a teacher who deserves to win the Global Teacher Prize, you can nominate a teacher.
