Fostering excellence in the mentorship of graduate students at Berkeley

Carol D. Soc Distinguished Graduate Student Mentoring Awards, established in 2007, recognize UC Berkeley faculty for their vital role in mentoring graduate students and training future faculty. The awards are funded by the Graduate Division and seek to foster the qualities of excellence in mentorship that are so important to the Berkeley community. Winners are honored annually at an awards ceremony jointly sponsored by the Graduate Assembly and the Graduate Division.

Nominations will open November 2019.
