icon Marine Excellence Awards

The Marine Corps Association Foundation provides awards to recognize exceptional performance across the Corps including thousands of awards at professional schools and within military occupational fields.  From boot camp honor graduates to Marine of the Year awards, and even up to extremely competitive awards like the Leftwich Trophy, the Marine Corps Association Foundation honors outstanding Marines of all ranks.

These awards allow commanders to motivate their Marines to strive for excellence. These awards are essential tools used by Marine leaders to ensure the men and women in their units are working to be the best, and when they succeed, are appropriately recognized for their achievements.

To request awards for your unit, please download our Award Request Form.

If you are from an ROTC program, please download the ROTC Award Request Form.
