ASU with two other universities launches prize for innovation in education and research

Arizona State University (ASU) along with two international universities has launched “PluS Alliance Prize” to recognise innovation in education and research field.

AUS has launched “PLuS Alliance” with Kings College, London and University of New South Wales, Sydney a year ago.

The award will be given under two categories: PLus Alliance Prize for Research Innovation and the PLuS Alliance Prize for Education Innovation. Students, staff and alumni of ASU and its partner institutions can nominate potential recipients from within as well as outside the ASU community for either of the two categories.

Awardees of either prize will receive recognition for their leadership and the US dollar 25,000 as award money. Along with this, award winner will be allowed to attend the Times Higher Education Summit in London, an opportunity to deliver a lecture at one of the three universities and networking opportunities with PLuS Alliance fellows of 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. 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.
