External Awards

Scholarly awards and prizes bring prestige and recognition to the Ohio State's world-class faculty. They are not only a recognition of faculty excellence, but also an important metric of institutional performance. Our office curates recognition opportunities based on the National Research Council (NRC), and the Top American Research Universities (TARU), and other prestigious national and international awards.

Since 2006, National Research Council staff have compiled lists of international, national, and disciplinary scholarly awards. The NRC categorizes awards as either "highly prestigious" or "prestigious".

The Top American Research Universities (TARU) report is determined partially on the number of significant faculty awards such as grants, fellowships, and other prizes earned as indicators of faculty distinction.

Selected National and International Awards
