Awards of Excellence

Have the achievement of your college or polytechnic recognized on the world stage.

The World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics first launched its Awards in 2014, with the aim of recognizing outstanding contributions from member institutions and associations to achieving the vision of the Federation and celebrating accomplishments in the global colleges and polytechnics sector.

The Awards seek to distinguish WFCP member institutions and individuals whose exceptional initiatives are strengthening applied learning and research outcomes. The Awards celebrate remarkable contributions to skills development and the wider economic and social development.

The WFCP Awards of Excellence honor and support higher standards in applied education institutions and offer the opportunity to showcase and foster best practices in the sector.

The Awards program is open to all WFCP members, regardless of type of membership, and their member institutions. To find a complete list of WFCP members, please visit our website.
