The Klaus J. Jacobs Best Practice Prizes

The Klaus J. Jacobs Best Practice Prizes acknowledge up to three institutions or individuals who are working to implement evidence-based solutions to improve child development and learning in practice.

The prizes were awarded every year until 2018. They are now awarded every two years, on alternating years. Each of the Best Practice Prize laureates is endowed with CHF 200’000 unrestricted funding. Up to ten prize finalists receive support for follow-up activities with the Foundation to promote evidence-based best practice in advancing child learning and education. The Jacobs Foundation Board of Trustees serves as the jury for the Best Practice Prizes.

Applications are now open
