I am the Special Events Coordinator for the Office of the Provost, Faculty Affairs office. One of my responsibilities is the Mellon Mentoring grant. Each year faculty members are recognized for their outstanding mentoring through the Mellon Mentoring Awards and you might have seen the call for nominations in the USC Chronicle and the Daily Trojan. It is important that we disseminate the call for nominations as widely as possible. We have four categories: faculty to faculty; faculty to postdocs; faculty to graduate students and faculty to undergraduate students. As graduate advisors you have the unique opportunity to let all of your students know about these awards and provide them the opportunity to recognize a faculty member who has been a mentor to them. Would you please provide the following information to your graduate students through your list-serves/email blast? Thank you for your assistance in this matter. I look forward to hearing from your graduate students as they nominate an outstanding faculty member for one of the Mellon Mentoring Awards.
