Award winners (programs or individuals) must have contributed to the advancement of international trade for four or more years. One award will be given per state per year. At least one letter in support of the nomination is required. The nomination form is available here.


International Program Excellence Awards

These awards recognize outstanding and innovative developments in the area of international education, counseling, training, trade promotion and research. They are given for specific programs developed by public or private sector trade-related organizations or educational institutions to meet a particular identified need. In recognizing these initiatives, NASBITE is seeking to provide models for others to emulate. Please note that this award is not intended for comprehensive programs composed of a number of components, rather it is intended for specific/focused trade-related initiatives such as a particular trade mission or a specific training program. Awards will be presented in two categories: Educational Programs and Outreach Programs. Educational programs include innovative courses or modules with a trade-related focus, and Outreach Programs include initiatives that are targeted towards the trade-related needs of the business community. Competitive nominations should be programs with a history of success and can be replicated by other institutions. At least one letter in support of the nomination and relevant samples of work are required. The nomination form is available here.
