About the Organization

The awarding of the Yidan Prize, and its various initiatives, are governed and managed by the Yidan Prize Foundation. Based in Hong Kong SAR, the foundation ensures the integrity, transparency and sustainability of the prize. The foundation is also responsible for communicating the Yidan Prize vision, and progressing its mission.

The Yidan Prize Foundation was formally established in 2016 by Dr Charles CHEN Yidan, a philanthropist, entrepreneur and lifelong learner. Recognizing the transformative effect education had on his life, he founded the prize to fulfill his dream of helping others benefit too. The idea of the prize came to him after stepping down as Chief Administration Officer of Tencent, which he co-founded in 1998.

About the Prize

The Yidan Prize is an inclusive education award that recognizes individuals, or up to three-member teams, who have contributed significantly to education research and development.

The prize aims to progress learning by building a global community committed to advancing ideas in education.

Each year the Yidan Prize is awarded in two categories to individuals, or teams of up to three members:

  • Yidan Prize for Education Research

Awarded for significant contribution to the science of education.

  • Yidan Prize for Education Development

Awarded for instituting positive change in education and learning.

Each prize comprises a gold medal and a total sum of HK$30 million (around US$3.9 million). Half is a cash prize of HK$15 million. The other HK$15 million is a project fund to help them expand their initiatives.


Nominators are typically members of government bodies, non-governmental organizations, professional associations and individual thought leaders.

The nominator should be a credible witness to the impact of the nominee(s).

Nominees can be either individuals or teams of up to three members. They can be teachers, researchers, academics, policymakers and education advocates.

Self-nominations are accepted, however posthumous nominations are not.
