In recognition of his contributions to the fields, he was named fellow of the American Institute of Physics (1988)and elected to the National Academy of Sciences (2001). Acknowledging Cava's achievements, the National Academy of Science specifically pointed to his mastery of the ternary and quaternary oxides that produced materials possessing high-temperature superconductivity. In 1996 Cava received the Bernd T. Matthias Prize for new superconducting materials. In 2001 he became a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He received in 2011 the Humboldt Prize and in 2012 the Linus Pauling Award. In 2014 received Doctor Honoris Causa degree from the Gdańsk University of Technology. In addition to research, Cava's ability to connect with students while teaching has earned him several teaching awards, including the Fall 2002 Excellence in Teaching Award from Princeton University.
