External Faculty Awards and Fellowships

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost encourages and supports the nomination of faculty members for national and international awards, fellowships, and other recognition opportunities.

External Awards

External awards refer to any awards, fellowships or honorary memberships that are awarded outside of Virginia Tech. The Office of Faculty Affairs works with the colleges and other campus partners to support faculty in seeking out and taking advantage of these external recognition opportunities.
