UNESCO/Emir Jaber Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah Prize for Digital Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities

Eligibility criteria

Eligible applicants are individuals (applying either individually, or representing a group of people) or organizations (an institution, non-governmental organization or other public or private entity).
For the purposes of the Prize, the guidance in Section “Conceptual context of the Prize” above will apply, and applications that do not satisfy these directions will be excluded.
Individuals and organizations applying for the Prize must have been active in the field for a minimum of five years, and have proven results from their efforts and activities.
Previous recipients of the UNESCO/Emir Jaber Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah Prize for Digital Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, or the UNESCO/Emir Jaber al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah Prize to Promote Quality Education for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities are not eligible to apply. Anyone else who submitted an application to previous editions of these prizes can submit a new application.

Members of staff of UNESCO as well as present and previous Jurors for this Prize may not apply.

Only one application may be submitted by any one individual, or by an organization, considered to include all of its parts. Should several entities within a single organization wish to be nominated, it is incumbent on the Head of that organization to select and authorize only one such application to be submitted on behalf of the organization. Should more than one application be received from an individual or from an organization, both will be excluded from consideration. Likewise, should both an individual and the organization which employs that individual apply, then both will be excluded.
Any nomination not submitted according to the procedures specified in Section “Application and nomination process” below and Statutes of the Prize will be excluded.
All applications must be submitted in the English or French languages and on the application form specified. The preferred mode of submission is electronically, but if this is not possible then postal applications and nominations are also acceptable.
