Outstanding IN LSAMP Faculty Mentor of the Year Award
Faculty mentors play a significant role in the IN LSAMP program where it is our mission to double the number of historically underrepresented populations receiving bachelor degrees in STEM disciplines. IN LSAMP faculty mentors dedicate time and space in their labs to help summer, and on occasion academic year, research scholars develop their repertoire to conduct an original research project. With this award we would like to highlight some of the great work that our mentors have provided to our students and program mission.
The nomination portal for the 2021-2022 Outstanding IN LSAMP Faculty Mentor Award closed on March 31st. Award recipients will be announced at the recognition ceremony on April 15.
