International Service Award

This award recognizes exemplary, ongoing contributions of OSU faculty and staff to the internationalization of the university by enhancing student, faculty, and staff awareness and participation in international education, research, and related activities. As further recognition, the award includes a plaque and $1,000.


The nominee must currently be a regular OSU staff or faculty member with at least a .5 FTE and a 9- to 12-month appointment. Emeritus, visiting, courtesy, and temporary faculty are not eligible.

Award Criteria

Nominations will be evaluated on the basis of excellence demonstrated in the following areas:

  • Extent to which the nominee has helped internationalize the teaching, research, or service programs directly related to Oregon State University.
  • Extent to which the nominee has benefited OSU students by promoting international education and cultural outreach activities.
  • Impact of the nominee’s efforts in fostering international awareness in the university and the local community.
  • Extent to which the nominee’s activities have enhanced Oregon State University’s reputation as an international university.

Nomination Process

Nominations shall include: (1)  the completed nomination form; (2) the nominee’s professional resume; (3) position description indicating breakdown of FTE allocation; (4) the nominee’s position description; (5) evidence of the nominee’s successful international activities; and (6) three letters of support: two may be from clients or current or former colleagues, and at least one of which must be from a current or former student. Because the nominator completes the nomination form, the nominator is not eligible to submit a letter of support. The letters of support each shall not exceed three single-sided pages using at least 12 font and 1" margins. Please be certain that the nomination materials, particularly the letters of support, address the criteria. Signatures on the letters and supporting documents must be included.

The nomination packet for the successful recipient becomes the property of University Archives and will not be returned to the nominator.

Selection Process

Nominations will be reviewed and selected by the Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee. Committee recommendations will be made on the basis of the information submitted; the committee does not solicit additional information.
