Do you have an undergraduate research mentor who has made a big difference in your life? Ever wish there was a way you could thank them and have them recognized for their efforts?
The University of Alberta Award for Outstanding Mentorship in Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities is a student-nominated award that recognizes those mentors that go above and beyond to help empower students to accomplish their goals, and to foster the next generation of researchers.
The award is offered in four categories:
- Early career faculty: faculty members who have held a faculty position at the U of A for 5 years or less
- Established faculty: faculty members who have held a faculty position at the U of A for more than 5 years
- Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows
- Non-academic and technical staff
Recipients in each category will be recognized with a certificate and a letter to their Dean, Chair, or immediate supervisor (as applicable), highlighting their commitment to high-quality undergraduate research mentorship.
This year's award recipients will be celebrated at the awards reception at the Festival of Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities on Thursday, March 15, 2018 from 5 - 7 pm in the Telus Centre.
In the event that a suitable nominee is not found for a particular category, the adjudication committee reserves the right to recommend that no award be given in that category.
