AAHB Mentorship Award
This award recognizes an Academy member who
has demonstrated outstanding mentorship by dedicating time, knowledge, and
energy for the purposes of guiding, nurturing, and supporting mentees. The focus of this award is on activities that
enhance the mentees' research skills, products, and careers (both academic and
professional). Applicants must show
strong evidence of outstanding mentorship to enhance the professional
development of students, junior faculty, and/or professionals in the field.
While teaching is a valued part of our profession, this award recognizes mentorship activities outside classroom pedagogy. Thus, we encourage applicants to highlight mentorship activities related to research and scholarship. It is emphasized that this is NOT a teaching award.
