Three educators celebrated at Penn GSE

Leadership Instincts

In the first celebration of the McGraw Prize in Education, Estela Mara Bensimon, Michelene (Micki) Chi, and Joseph S. Krajcik were honored for their achievements in higher education, learning science research, and pre-K-12 education, respectively. Each of the awardees will receive $50,000.

The Harold W. McGraw Jr. Family Foundation and the Penn Graduate School of Education in February announced a three-year, $3 million partnership to enhance and expand the Harold W. McGraw Jr. Prize in Education, one of the most prestigious honors in the field. Since 1988, the award has celebrated innovation in education by recognizing nearly 100 individuals who have dedicated themselves to improving education and making a transformative impact. Following a public nomination process, winners are selected by an independent panel of 12 judges, who are themselves leaders in the field.
