Faculty Mentoring Awards

Established in 2006, the Faculty Mentoring Awards, sponsored by the Carolina Women’s Leadership Council, recognize outstanding faculty members who go the extra mile to guide, mentor and teach. Each year the Council recognizes three recipients with an award of $5,000 each in the categories of faculty-to-undergraduate student mentoring, faculty-to-graduate student mentoring and faculty-to-junior faculty mentoring.
