Frequently Asked Questions

Which EAIE awards can I submit a nomination for?

The EAIE currently recognises outstanding contributions to the international higher education field through seven different awards:

  • Institutional Award for Innovation in Internationalisation
  • Bo Gregersen Award for Best Practice
  • Constance Meldrum Award for Vision and Leadership
  • Tony Adams Award for Excellence in Research
  • Transatlantic Leadership Award
  • Rising Star Award

EAIE members may submit nominations for all awards except the President's Award. This award is given every two years by the EAIE President to a person of his or her choice, independent of the regular nomination procedure of the Awards and Talent Committee. Nominations for this award will open in 2018.

Do I have to be an EAIE member to nominate someone?

Yes, only EAIE members may submit award nominations.

Is the person I'm nominating required to be a member?

In some cases, it is not necessary for the nominee to be an EAIE member. Please see each individual award for membership criteria as this varies from award to award.
