The Yidan Prize & The STEPP Center

The STEPP Center evolved from the Institute for Policy Research's (IPR) Q-Center. This expansion was made possible by the 2018 Yidan Prize for Education Research awarded to Larry Hedges.

The Yidan Prize

Founded in 2016 by Dr. Charles CHEN Yidan, the mission of the Yidan Prize is to create a better world through education. The Prize serves to provide a platform to engage the global community in conversation on educational change. It consists of two awards: the Yidan Prize for Education Research and the Yidan Prize for Education Development. Each Yidan Prize Laureate receives a gold medal and a total sum of HK$30 million ($3.9 million USD). One-half of this amount is in the form of a cash prize to the Laureate, with an equivalent amount constituting a project fund.
