Awards of $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International individuals to recognize outstanding leadership in the promotion and participation of underrepresented groups in engineering and science fields and careers. This may include African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic men, women of all ethnic and racial groups, and people with disabilities.
There are two awards:
- Lifetime Mentor Award: This individual will have served in the role of mentor for 25 or more years.
- Mentor Award: This individual will have served in the role of mentor for less than 25 years.
Both awards recognize an individual who has mentored and guided significant numbers of students from underrepresented groups to the completion of doctoral studies or who has impacted the climate of a department, college, or institution to significantly increase the diversity of students pursuing and completing doctoral studies.
Such commitment and extraordinary effort may be demonstrated by:
- The number and diversity of students mentored
- Assisting students to present and publish their work, to find financial aid, and to provide career guidance
- Providing psychological support, encouragement, and essential strategies for life in the scholarly community
- Continued interest in the individual’s professional advancement
