Nomination Form, 2020 Outstanding Mentorship Award, CUR Chemistry Division
The Chemistry Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) seeks to honor exceptional mentoring and advising by higher education faculty across all subdisciplines of chemistry with Outstanding Mentorship Awards. These awards recognize transformative mentoring and advising in at least two of the following four categories:

• undergraduate students in mentor-led chemistry research projects;

• undergraduate students through the integration of undergraduate research into the academic curriculum and coursework in chemistry;

• undergraduate students and/or faculty by utilization of diversity and inclusion best practices in chemistry education and research; and

• undergraduate students and/or faculty by establishment of programmatic infrastructure that enhances undergraduate research

Each award will consist of a $500 cash prize to the recipient, a certificate of recognition, a one-year individual membership to CUR that will be funded by the Chemistry Division, and a letter of commendation from CUR that shall be sent to the recipient’s institution. If the awardee already possesses a CUR membership paid by the home institution, the one-year membership in CUR may be donated to another individual. In each award cycle, up to three awards will be given.

Nomination deadline: January 2, 2020
Eligibility Criteria
Nominations from past colleagues of the nominee are encouraged. Past students wishing to nominate a faculty mentor are encouraged to work with an institutional official who shall advance the nomination.

Self-nominations and nominations from current students will not be accepted.
