The Okuda Award was an award given in the 24th century. It could be given to an individual for the fields of engineering sciences and subspace research.

As of 2370, both Daniel Kwan and Anaanda Ziff had won this award, he in the former discipline, she in the latter. It was displayed in their service records. (TNG: "Eye of the Beholder")

The award was named after Michael Okuda, the scenic art supervisor.
In the post-remastered episode, the award's name was changed to Tezber, for Kwan, and Uyehara, for Ziff.
