Faculty awards and honors

Honorific awards create opportunities.

External awards recognize the remarkable contributions that Virginia Tech faculty make every day.

Why pursue awards?

External awards can be vital to faculty at any stage in their careers. An important component of professional development, honorific awards can increase visibility, open doors to new communities of scholarship, forge connections, create research opportunities, and provide well-deserved acknowledgment for extraordinary contributions.  


How we can help 

As part of our mission to advance research at Virginia Tech, the Institute for Critical Technology and Applied Science is building a program to facilitate faculty awards. We:

  • Maintain updated lists of available honorific awards and application requirements
  • Use data analytics to strategically identify and evaluate promising opportunities
  • Curate resources that may be useful to faculty 
  • Work as a liaison to support nominations and submissions on a case-by-case basis.

Find additional information about external awards support and resources on the Faculty Affairs website.
