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 July.

This Year's Call for Nominations will be for Track II: Impact. We are now accepting nominations.  Completed applications can be submitted here

This track seeks to recognize the lifetime achievement and outstanding contributions made by a faculty member at an APLU-member university toward furthering international programs on campus, nationally or internationally. The purpose of this track is to recognize faculty who do not have international activities or programs as a primary responsibility, but who through their advocacy and leadership, have advanced international programs for academic institutions throughout their career.  

To read more about the Malone Award application, visit our Guidelines and Requirements page. You can also view our Past Winners list here.

The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, April 26th at 11:59 PM ET.
