CAMBRIDGE (AP) -- Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai is being honored by Harvard University for her work promoting girls' education.

Harvard's Kennedy School says Yousafzai will be awarded the 2018 Gleitsman Award at a ceremony Thursday. As a teen in Pakistan, she survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban, and she became the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 when she was recognized for her global work supporting schooling for all children.
