Malone International Award

The Michael P. Malone International Leadership Awards were established in 2000 to provide national recognition for a career of outstanding contributions to further international education at state and land-grant institutions. The Malone Awards honor those who further international education in public higher education and are dedicated to the memory of Michael P. Malone (1940-1999), who served as president of Montana State University from 1991 until his untimely death in 1999.

These awards provide national recognition for individuals who have made significant contributions to international programs, either through innovative practices or life-long impact. The awards are presented at the Commission on International Initiatives Summer Meeting each summer.
