Faculty Mentoring Award

Faculty Mentoring Award

The Faculty Mentoring Award will be awarded annually to a member of the Dartmouth faculty who exemplifies a deep commitment to fostering the professional and personal development of graduate students. Successful recipients may have contributed to graduate student development by advising graduate level research and promoting successful transition from the graduate studies to post-doctoral work, faculty positions, or other employment.

Three members of the Graduate Student Council will select the recipient with the Assistant Dean of Graduate Student Affairs and Graduate Dean serving as ex officio members. Graduate students and recent graduate alumni (no more than three years out) may make nominations in the form of a letter of nomination. Letters from multiple sources (i.e. multiple students and alumni) are strongly encouraged. However, each graduate student or alumni may only nominate one person for the award. Faculty in the Dartmouth Arts & Sciences Master's and Doctoral programs are eligible for the award.

Nomination letters must be submitted to the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies Office, Dartmouth College, 37 Dewey Field Road, Suite 6062, Room 437, Hanover, NH 03755-1419 (to the attention of Kerry Landers) no later than March 8. Or e-mail your nomination letter to [email protected]. Each nominee will then be asked directly by the Graduate School to submit a curriculum vita.

The recipient of the award will receive $500 to be used for further mentoring activities.
