There are many types of awards available depending on your work and contributions. For example, professional societies and associations sponsor discipline-based awards and honors from early career to lifetime achievement. We value all awards and provide assistance with pursuit of a wide range of teaching, research, and service honors.
National Research Council-Recognized Awards
The National Research Council (NRC) has identified a list of more than 1,300 accolades that cover a range of disciplinary areas in four categories (Arts and Humanities; Life Sciences; Physical Sciences and Engineering; Social and Behavioral Sciences). These lists identify prestigious and highly prestigious research/scholarship awards, fellowships, and memberships in honorary societies.
The lists of individual awards in each area can be found here:
