Milken Educator Awards Program
The Milken Family Foundation Awards Program was started in the early 1980s. The Milken family saw the importance of recognizing great educators and developed a program that provides public recognition and financial rewards to outstanding educators. The first awards were presented to 12 California educators in 1987. Each educator in the program is given a $25,000 unrestricted financial award and the opportunity to participate in ongoing professional development at yearly state conferences, an annual National Education Conference, and through state networks of educators, state agency personnel, legislators, university personnel, business partners, and foundation staff. Since 1987, the program has awarded over $68 million to more than 2,700 outstanding teachers, principals, and educators. Kansas joined the Milken Family Foundation Awards Program in 1991.
