The focus is on innovations such as curricular design, teaching methods, and technology-enabled learning that strengthen students' capabilities and desire to grow into leadership roles.
The Gordon Prize is presented annually*, and the recipient receives a $500,000 cash award, half granted to the recipient and the remainder granted to the recipient's institution to support the continued development, refinement, and dissemination of the recognized innovation.
The intent of the donor, Bernard Gordon, in endowing this prize was to enhance U.S engineering leadership, to foster the development of engineering leaders through innovative educational programs developed by U.S. institutions of learning in the U.S. (i.e., not an international satellite facility) and to increase U.S economic competitiveness. Accordingly, prize recipients must be US citizens or permanent residents who are currently and have been substantially engaged in the nominated engineering and scholastic work in institutions in the United States and the institution where the innovation was developed and which shares the prize with the innovators must be a U.S. institution located in the U.S. Nomination from international persons or organizations are welcome, but must be for U.S. innovators and institutions. NAE members and nonmembers are eligible.* The prize is awarded only to living persons.
