Mentorship Awards in Aging
This award will be presented to an individual who has consistently provided support, guidance and strong direction to undergraduate and graduate students in aging and adult development. This individual might be someone who resides at a liberal arts institution or college that focuses on undergraduate education or it may be an individual at a PhD-granting institution. This award will be given to the individual who has been most actively committed to mentoring and who best exemplifies the qualities identified with strong, effective mentoring.
Nomination materials should be sent in one email to the chair of the Awards Committee, Jennifer Birdsall and Cecilia Poon, with "D20 Mentor Award Nomination" noted as the subject of the email. The nomination materials will include the following:
A letter of nomination (by a Div. 20 member) describing the individual's impact and role as a mentor.
A current CV of the nominee.
A list of students and junior colleagues who the nominee has mentored by that person.
A brief statement by the nominee of his or her current work and future plans.
At least three additional letters of support written by students, former students, and junior colleagues. The letters for the mentoring awards should include the following information:
• A description of the nature of the mentoring relationship (when, where, level of training).
• A CV or resume for the student or junior colleague writing the reference.
• The role played by the mentor in facilitating the student or colleague's development as a scholar and professional.
Nominees must be members or affiliates of Div. 20.
