Pearson Prize for Higher Education
The Pearson Foundation established the Pearson Prize for Higher Education, a two‐tiered award, to both identify students who are giving back to the college community and help them continue their work.
The Pearson Prize supports students who have:
- completed at least one year in college;
- demonstrated leadership in community service;
- been attending a two‐ or four‐year school.
The Pearson Prize offers two fellowships:
- Pearson Prize National Fellows (20) receive $10,000, paid over two years.
- Pearson Prize Community Fellows (50) receive $500, awarded in a single year.
