A mentor is a person who serves as a teacher, sponsor, advisor, trusted counselor, guide or model.
The AWN recognizes the importance of mentoring in academic/professional growth and development. The AWN Mentor Award is intended to recognize an individual who has served as an outstanding mentor to a female Washington University faculty member or trainee. This award is distinct from a teaching award in that nominees should mentor in every sense of the word, not simply through teaching responsibilities.
Eligible candidates are male or female Washington University Faculty members Instructor level or above. Nominations should be made by female Washington University faculty members or postgraduate trainees who have been mentored by an outstanding individual. Nominations should consist of a type-written letter describing how this individual has served as a mentor. The award will be given at the AWN Spring meeting.
