- About AFSA
AFSA’s Foreign Service Champions Award honors the accomplishments of influential non-career members of the foreign affairs community who have made meaningful contributions to diplomacy and the Foreign Service. AFSA established this award in 2021 to bring greater recognition to those who have demonstrably championed the Foreign Service’s critical role in U.S. foreign policy and have had an enduring and positive impact on the institution of the Foreign Service as well as the diplomatic profession.
By giving this award, AFSA seeks to expand its recognition of individuals who have shown a committed dedication to the Foreign Service and increase the visibility of and support for AFSA’s work outside of the Foreign Service.
The AFSA Governing Board has determined the criteria guidelines to be as follows.
The presentation takes place during AFSA’s annual Awards Ceremony, typically in October at the Department of State. A distinguished individual who has worked with the recipient is asked to present the award.
