Boise State Graduate College Excellence in Graduate Mentoring Award

The academic community is in agreement that mentoring is an important element of graduate education. Mentoring ensures that students are well-trained and socialized in their disciplines. In addition, students who are mentored are more productive, more involved in their departments, and more satisfied with their programs.

The Boise State Graduate College Excellence in Graduate Faculty Mentoring Award is designed to recognize and celebrate the considerable efforts of faculty who consistently serve as effective mentors and to encourage and promote a culture of mentorship across the university.   

Each year, the Graduate College will provide two graduate mentoring awards and two honorable mentions. Recipients of the graduate mentoring award will each receive an award of $1,000. 

In addition, the Graduate College invites you to nominate a graduate student mentor for the Boise State Graduate College Excellence in Graduate Student Mentoring Award. This award is designed to recognize and celebrate the considerable efforts of Boise State graduate students who serve as inclusive mentors. Two graduate student recipients will each receive an award of $250.
