The University Committee on International Affairs invites nominations for three university-wide awards funded by the Alumni Association. Winners of Alumni Awards for International Excellence receive $2,000 and a plaque.

There are three categories: International Education, International Outreach, and International Research.

The deadline for submission of nomination packages for these awards is Monday, March 12, 2021, at 5 p.m. The Alumni Awards will be conferred during the Faculty Awards dinner in August 2021.

Achievements in international education, outreach, and research are distinct from each other. On occasion, candidates have been nominated for more than one of these awards in a given year. In such cases, separate nomination packages should be submitted responding to the unique requirements of each award.

Eligibility criteria, nomination packet information, and a list of previous award winner can be found here. Prospective applicants are also encouraged to consult the Faculty Awards page of the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost website.

Please send complete nomination packages only — including all letters and support materials — via email, campus mail, or hand delivery to:
