Teaching & Mentoring Awards
with Honors


In order to recognize Iowa State faculty and staff who support Honors at Iowa State, the Honors Program gives two annual awards of $500 for outstanding Honors teaching, advising, or mentoring. This year’s recipients will be recognized at the University Honors Program Convocation on Wednesday, April 27.

The criterion for these awards is general excellence in teaching of Honors courses, seminars, or other courses taught for Honors credit; or in the mentoring of Honors students through academic advising, advising of Honors projects, and mentoring of students in the First-Year Honors/Mentor Research Program. Anyone who has taught or mentored in the Honors Program at least once is eligible to apply.

Letters nominating candidates for these awards (including self-nominations), as well as optional but desirable) supporting materials such as syllabi or student letters, may be delivered to the Honors Program Office, 2130 Jischke Honors Building, until 5 p.m. Friday, March 25. The University Honors Committee will evaluate the nominations.
