Awards for mentoring undergrads in research, scholarly and creative activities

The Office of the Provost is offering awards to recognize the important role mentors have in fostering undergraduates’ intellectual, personal, and professional growth. We encourage students to participate in high-impact practices including research, scholarly and creative endeavors. These awards provide members of the faculty, academic staff, and post-doctoral fellows/graduate students with recognition for their excellence in mentoring undergraduates and contribution to a core component of students’ Wisconsin Experience. The awards will provide $2,000 of university expendable funds. Descriptions of the eligibility requirements, selection criteria, and application materials for these awards are described in this document.

The awards will be presented to recipients at a reception at the close of the Undergraduate Symposium on Thursday, April 14, 2016, in Union South. It is a requirement of the program that they attend to receive their award.

The deadline to submit nominations is Wednesday, March 2, 2016. Nominations should be sent to Assistant Vice Provost Laurie Mayberry, Questions can be directed to Vice Provost Steve Cramer at
