International Student Awards and Recognition

Every year international students and faculty receive awards and recognition from the school and off-campus organizations.

Below are some of American University's prizes honoring our top international students:

The Carlton Savage Award is one of ten Student Achievement Awards given annually at the university. It honors the international student who has contributed the most to increasing intercultural understanding at the University. 

The SIS Class of 1967 Prize is awarded annually by the School of International Service, honoring the SIS undergraduate international student who best exemplifies the qualities of dedication to change, belief in education, and giving back to our communities.
