NCWIT Undergraduate Research Mentoring Award
Students often cite the importance of an individual faculty mentor whose support influenced their educational and career path. Data show that research experiences for undergraduates (REUs) can make a difference in students’ lives and provide a pathway to graduate degrees and research careers. REUs can be particularly important for women – who earn only 18% of all bachelor’s degrees in computing – since they provide opportunities for personalized student-faculty interaction, a strong predictor of student retention.
The Undergraduate Research Mentoring Award accepts nominations for faculty from all non-profit, U.S. Academic Alliance member institutions (a school may become a member after one of its faculty is nominated.) We are pleased to announce AT&T is again sponsoring this award and the institution where the school resides will receive a $5,000 gift that the winner can use for their research.
