Undergraduate Mentoring Award

In recognition of the many hours our faculty fellows offer to undergraduate students who participate in our programs, the Kellogg Institute has established the Undergraduate Mentoring Award to be presented each May. The honor, carrying a cash prize of $750, recognizes one faculty fellow each year for excellence in mentoring undergraduate student research. It is awarded annually at Kellogg’s commencement award ceremony.

The exceptional mentoring of the Institute’s faculty fellows is a vital component of several of Kellogg’s programs, including the International Development Studies, International Scholars and Research Grants programs.
