ISA Awards

About our Awards

ISA offers several awards given to recognize outstanding scholarly contributions to the field of international studies. These awards have different committees, nominating procedures and submission deadlines. They recognize outstanding papers, books, achievement, and service awards.

Required ISA Membership: All awardees must be members of ISA within two weeks of the award being given, and must remain current through disbursement (typically a month following event). Committees may confirm membership status of participants by contacting ISA Headquarters.
