We recognize the most high-achieving NPS students and faculty members by funding quarterly awards that honor and celebrate their achievements. Recipients of these awards demonstrate excellence in classroom learning or instruction and impressive thesis research. Recipients often go above and beyond in contributing to student education beyond the classroom or in distinguishing themselves in a specific department. These awards are just one way the NPS Foundation encourages an environment of unparalleled scholarly excellence for our next generation of military leaders.

“Most of us thank people in the military for their service, but if we can recognize them more, like through these awards, it makes it that much more special."
- David Liskin, NPS Foundation trustee emeritus and award sponsor
