Andrew Carnegie

Andrew Carnegie, whose wealth helped establish the The Carnegie Corporation of New York, one of the main supporters of Partnering for Excellence.

The Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Opportunity Equation, and Ashoka's Changemakers have partnered to launch Partnering for Excellence: Innovations in Science+Technology+Engineering+Math Education, an online competition designed to inspire science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM) learning solutions by "seeking models that bring STEM expertise and resources from the private and not-for-profit sectors into public schools."

More than $150,000 in cash and other prizes will be awarded to winners in seven categories. The categories include the Judges' Awards; the People's Choice Award; the ExxonMobil Foundation Prize, which focuses on grades five through eight; the Jhumki Basu Prize, which democratizes science education in the United States; the Mind Trust Prize, which aims to improving STEM education in Indiana; the Amgen Foundation Prize, which goes to an effective partnership model that enhances STEM learning through inquiry-based methods; and the Innovations Life Sciences Prize, which goes to two projects that promote partnerships between scientists and educators at middle and high schools in emerging areas of life sciences. The deadline for entry is August 3.
