UBS Optimus Foundation in partnership with Convergence have launched the Tertiary Education Financing Prize to identify solutions that provide inclusive, fair, and affordable financing to students in tertiary education in low- and lower-middle-income countries. The prize will consist of up to four grants of at least USD 250,000 each.
