Gottlieb Recipient of USAID Distinguished Career Award

“In recognition of eighteen years of exceptional leadership and in recognition of his dedication to the mission of USAID and the programs that benefit millions of people around the world.”

Upon departing USAID, Professor of the Practice Greg Gottlieb was given the distinguished career award in July 2017. This honor is the highest Agency award and is only presented to individuals recognized as having distinguished careers upon their departure from the Agency.

We are proud of Mr. Gottlieb's achievements as he begins his time as the new Director of the Feinstein International Center. He brings his incredible work and dedication as he continues his career here at the Friedman School.


The Administrator’s Distinguished Career Service Award is presented only upon departure from the Agency, at any time throughout the year. This award requires an extensive review by the Agency’s Special Awards Committee and Administrator approval.
