The International Student Achievement Award (ISAA) is awarded each semester to one international student at any degree level who has demonstrated excellence in academic achievement and shown a commitment to campus and/or community engagement. 



Nominations for this Fall 2017 are due by November 8, 2017. Submissions are received using the online nomination form


  • Faculty, staff, and fellow students can nominate an outstanding graduating international student. A member of the community can nominate individuals, as well. Students cannot nominate themselves.
  • The student must be a graduating F-1 or J-1 international student during the semester of nomination. (*Please note: Students graduating in May or August are eligible for the Spring award and students graduating in December are eligible for the Fall award.)
  • Nominees will be evaluated by a committee of staff and faculty based on excellence in academic achievement and commitment to campus and/or community engagement. Thoroughness on the nomination form is appreciated.
