Acknowledging extraordinary international contributions

Indiana University is honored to recognize those who make significant contributions to international programs, understanding, and service. We present two such awards each year.

  • Creating a welcoming environment for international students, scholars, and visitors
  • Fostering the engagement of IU faculty, staff, and students in international aid and service organizations in overseas communities
  • Encouraging business and civic cooperation between Indiana organizations and counterparts abroad
  • Offering outstanding service in international diplomacy, technical assistance, philanthropy, or work with volunteer agencies
