External Awards

UIC aspires to be the nation’s premier urban public research university and one of the indicators for membership in the Association of American Universities (AAU) is membership in national academies.

Below is a list of UIC faculty elected to national and other honorific academies and prestigious fellowships and awards. Part of the effort of this committee is to identify current faculty members who have received fellowships and awards. If you have recently received an award or if your name is missing from these lists, you may submit the information to us using the form at the bottom of this page.

If you have a won a national award and would like to be included on this page, please contact
