Applications for the 2023 Graduate Division Mentoring Awards are now open! To recognize and encourage the efforts of graduate students who serve as effective mentors, the Graduate Division offers two awards for students who have distinguished themselves in the area of undergraduate research supervision: the Fiona and Michael Goodchild Graduate Mentoring Award and the Carol Genetti Graduate Mentoring Award. Four recipients of the Fiona and Michael Goodchild Graduate Mentoring Award and four recipients of the Carol Genetti Graduate Mentoring Award will receive $1000 each (eight awards in all). Nominations are due on Monday, May 8.
As of three years ago, the nomination process has changed in the following important ways:
Departments may nominate a maximum of two (2) graduate students per year to be considered for the mentoring award
Departments should internally coordinate their selections, and nominations must be submitted by the department chair or faculty graduate program advisor
For programs and institutes not housed in academic departments but who wish to nominate a student, please coordinate recommendations through the student's home department
The deadline to nominate is Monday, May 8, 2023.
All materials must be submitted online through this form. Email and hard copy submissions will not be accepted. Please visit the award website for important information on eligibility and nomination procedures.
