The CUR Physics and Astronomy Division would like to honor Mentors in our disciplines for their long-term efforts in mentoring undergraduate research (UGR) students. Individuals may be nominated by CUR Institutional or Institutional-Enhanced members, or individual CUR members. Nominees are encouraged to be CUR members, but it is not required for nomination. Individuals mentoring interdisciplinary projects are eligible as long as those projects involve a major physical or astronomical component. Nominations/recommendations must be submitted in their entirety by 11:59 pm (ET), Friday April 16, 2021, using the online submission form.
Mentors with 3 or more years of experience in a primary role are eligible. While this generally corresponds to Assistant Professors and above, the committee recognizes that many mentors are not in tenure-track positions and that some scientists begin significant undergraduate research mentoring before they obtain a permanent position. Nominations of individuals at 2-year colleges, national labs, research centers, etc. are especially encouraged. Nominations must be made by colleagues who know the nominee well. Self-nominations will not be accepted.
The CUR Physics and Astronomy Councilors will review all completed applications and select this year’s winner(s). The awardee(s) will be notified in late Spring. Awardees will receive a plaque recognizing their significant contributions to mentoring undergraduate researchers. Letters of recognition will also be sent to identified superiors (Department Chair, Dean, Provost, Center Head, etc.).
