Courage Award
The Courage Award recognizes an activist or engaged scholar from the community where the annual meeting is located.  Nominees will be individuals or organizations addressing the issues of concern to the LGBTQ community and sexual minorities globally and that are the focus of the research of caucus members, including but not limited to issues of sexuality, gender, and race, development, inequality, human rights, conflict resolution, violence and war, and global solidarity and justice.

The LGBTQA Scholar Award
This award recognizes individuals whose scholarship or teaching and mentoring serve as a model for the integration within international studies of subjects of concern to the LGBTQ community or those incorporating theoretical and empirical perspectives on sexuality and gender.  Awards can be made for an individual paper or journal article, book or edited collection, or for distinguished service in teaching and mentoring within academia in general and ISA in particular.  Scholarship awards will be made only for work presented or published during the 12 months previous to the nomination deadline.  Teaching or mentoring awards will be made in recognition of an ongoing and distinguished commitment or for an individual activity or project in teaching and mentoring of great significance to LGBTQ scholars during the 12 months previous to the nomination deadline.
