April 19, 2017

Students, staff and alumni at Arizona State University along with two international university partners have an opportunity to be recognized for education and research innovation through the newly launched PluS Alliance Prize.

A year after launching the PLuS Alliance with Kings College London and University of New South Wales, Sydney, the partnership is hosting the inaugural PLUS Alliance Prize. Students, staff and alumni from ASU and the partner institutions can nominate potential recipients both from within and outside the ASU community for either of the two prize categories: the PLus Alliance Prize for Research Innovation and the PLuS Alliance Prize for Education Innovation. Nominations are open through May 12.  PluS Alliance Prize Download Full Image

Awardees of either prize will receive recognition for their leadership, $25,000 award money, travel expenses to attend the Times Higher Education Summit for the award of the prize in London, an opportunity to deliver a lecture at one of the three PLuS Alliance universities and networking opportunities with PLuS Alliance Fellows across the three partner universities.

The PLuS Alliance Prize supports the alliance’s mission to develop sustainable solutions to society’s global challenges through education and research. Since its inception a year ago, the PLuS Alliance launched combined online courses available to students at each of the universities, hosted student visits across each of the campuses and provided seed funding for new research in the realms of global health, sustainability, technology and innovation, and social justice. This prize is a further example of the PLuS Alliance mission in action by promoting researchers and educators to lead the way to a sustainable future.

PLuS Alliance Prize awardees will be determined by a judging panel including the presidents of the PLuS Alliance member universities and external experts in innovation.
