The word "award" taking as a verb, means that to give money or a prize following an official decision according to my dictionary. My question is that if it is so, can I use the word "award" to mean that someone is offered a post which is kind of official and respected by most of the people and this post is not related to any money. For examples if someone is offered a novel price, can we say that "He or she is the one who was awarded the novel price last year"
My confusion is that the word "award" related to money but I wanna use it with a post which is not related to money at all but a post that is most respected.
Sorry. Nobel price.
