Mentor Awards

Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering (PAESMEM)

The PAESMEM Program seeks to identify outstanding mentoring efforts that enhance the participation of groups (i.e., women, minorities, and persons with disabilities) that are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The awardees serve as leaders in the national effort to develop fully the nation’s human resources in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This program is administered by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

AAAS Mentor Awards

The two categories of theĀ AAAS Mentor Awards (Lifetime Mentor Award and Mentor Award) both honor individuals who during their careers demonstrate extraordinary leadership to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in science and engineering fields and careers. These groups include: women of all racial or ethnic groups; African American, Native American, and Hispanic American men; and people with disabilities.

Both awards recognize an individual who has mentored and guided significant numbers of students from underrepresented groups to the completion of doctoral studies or who has improved the climate of a department, college, or institution to significantly increase the diversity of students pursuing and completing doctoral studies
