The use of "AWARD" as a verb

Greetings to you all,

We have had the following sentence in our GSCE exam:

"He was awarded because of his scientific research."

Is this use of "award" with the indirect object (He) correct?

Or should the sentence be reworded to have a direct object, like this:

"He was awarded the Nobel Prize for his scientific research"?

Thank you very much
