To change most young Americans’ lack of knowledge about the world at large, the Goldman Sachs Foundation and the Asia Society are awarding five $25,000 prizes to recognize creative and practical models for international education in action. The prizes will identify schools–elementary, middle, and secondary–that engage students in learning about other world regions; states that are actively promoting teaching and learning about other world regions, cultures, and languages in their education system; colleges and universities that have strong international content in their teacher preparation or K-12 outreach programs; and media or technology companies and organizations that are making international content and information available to students and teachers in stimulating new ways. One prize will be awarded in each of these five categories of eligibility.
