Named for the late Senator Paul Simon (D-Ill.), both awards seek to recognize institutions where international education is infused into the learning environment. Senator Simon was a strong advocate for international education throughout his career in public service. His efforts were instrumental in the creation of the National Security Education Program, and his visionary leadership remains central to current efforts to establish a national program to increase the number of American college students who study abroad.
