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.
