Deadline: 25-Jan-22

The Spencer Foundation is inviting nominations for its Mentorship Award, a grant intended to support the ongoing mentorship of the awardees.

Program statement

At Spencer, they are dedicated to the belief that high-quality research training and mentoring is a cornerstone of the field and worthy of recognition. As such, they are excited to announce the call for nominations to the Spencer Mentor Award, a grant intended to support the ongoing mentorship of the awardees. This award will provide $ 15,000 grants to awardees who have demonstrated extraordinary contributions to supporting the research training and career trajectories of graduate students and junior scholars who engage in education research, broadly construed.

They see mentorship as critical to the goals of supporting and broadening access to rigorous, high-quality education research training. They recognize that mentorship comes in many forms and encourage nominations that make explicit and value the full range of these possibilities. Through this award, they hope to give added recognition to the importance of mentoring and acknowledge mentors who have enriched the lives, research, and careers of students and colleagues, and in doing so, improved the field.
