Fellowships and awards

Fellowships and awards are our way of saying, "Thank you!" for being an instrument of profound changes in education. It is further to promote greater innovation in education at all levels. Change is needed:

  • Individuals from more than 300 schools in 22 states of India have received the Fellowships and Awards since 2009 when these were first created.
  • Almost twenty policy makers and individuals from across the global have been honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to Education Award.
  • Your school community is invited to participate by filling out a simple form available on the Education We Want website.
  • Given the urgency of the need for reform, we must initiate change at all levels: from top-down policy to the bottom-up grassroots.
  • Fellowships are given for an idea that is yet to be implemented. The idea may be simple yet one you feel has the potential to make an impact, improve the way we do education and / or inspire children in small or big ways.
  • There are no limits and every school can apply as many ideas as their Principals and staff wish.
  • An independent jury formed of Principals that volunteer at the next EdWW Conclave, Synergy Workshop or Ed Leadership Roundtables select from the applications. Selection is therefore a fair and transparent process.
  • The Fellowship form is easy to fill.
  • An idea or innovation may take three months or a year to put into action and show case impact. It may be for a classroom, a school, an NGO, or a whole district. It may be related to classroom practice or to policy and administration. It may proposed by a teacher or a Principal, an NGO worker or a policy maker.
  • Fellowship holders are expected to apply for the EdWW Innovator Awards after they have completed implementing their idea. They are expected to produce documentation including anecdotal, qualitative and quantitative data, videos, PPTs, etc., to establish impact. When impact is established, this leads to the Innovator Award.

All Fellows are expected to produce documentation including anecdotal, qualitative and quantitative data, videos, PPTs and other ways in which documentation can be produced and impact established

Given the urgency of the need for reform, we must initiate change at all levels: from top-down policy to the bottom-up grassroots

Fellowships are given for an idea that is yet to be implemented. The idea may be simple but one you feel will have an impact, improve the way we do education and / or inspire children in small or big ways.

There are no limits and every school can apply as many ideas as their Principals and staff wish. An independent jury formed of Principals that volunteer at the next EdWW or Ed Leadership Roundtables always select from the applications. The Fellowship form is easy to fill.

An idea or innovation may take three months or a year or several years to implement and show case impact. It may be for a classroom, a school, an NGO, or a whole district. It may be related to classroom practice or to policy and administration. It may proposed by a teacher or a Principal or an NGO worker or a policy maker. Everyone is invited to apply including curriculum writers, authors, parents and all concerned individuals wishing to make an impact through education.
