Entrepreneurship for Education
The Goldman Prize

The Pitt School of Education has received a gift from Richard and Renée Goldman to support promotion of educational entrepreneurship among Pitt students, faculty, and alumni. The Goldman Prize competition will provide finalists and winners with important benefits, including mentoring and financial support to nurture a big idea for education. It also is meant to create new opportunities for applicants to work with faculty on a project that might significantly improve education, to go beyond classwork and dissertations to connect with faculty around direct efforts to help children and/or adults learn what they need to be productive and successful citizens.

The contest is open to all members of the Pitt family: current students, alumni, and faculty.

The Goldman Prize program is meant to stimulate more educational innovation within the broader Pitt family. The core element of the plan is a competition for a Big Idea that significantly addresses a serious problem in American education.
