Outstanding Mentor Awards

Faculty mentors are imperative to undergraduate research experiences. You help motivate, inspire, teach, and mold students' research interests and futures. Below is information about mentor awards given by the Undergraduate Research Hub and the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).


The Undergraduate Research Hub Mentor Award

Honorees are selected from the nominations based on a combination of factors, including student testimonials, innovative or unusual mentoring practices, and other considerations, such as mentees served and years of service as a mentor to undergraduates. Students from the TRELS, McNair, and Faculty Mentor Programs are sent information on how to nominate their mentors for the award. | Previous Outstanding Mentor Award winners.
