Guidelines and Instructions for CHOP Faculty Mentor Award Nominations


The CHOP Faculty Mentor Award honors faculty investigators whose mentoring has helped to produce the next generation of outstanding investigators. Evidence of successful mentoring may include, but is not limited to, the impact of mentees’ scientific contributions, achievement of academic independence, funding, and attainment of prestigious academic appointments.

Nominators/letter writers must be current or former mentees of the person being nominated, and must have a faculty appointment either at CHOP or elsewhere. Mentor Award recipients must be CHOP-based faculty.

Nomination packages must contain three signed letters from current or former mentees. Letters should detail the specific ways in which mentors have advanced the nominators' and possibly others’ careers.

Please email signed letters of nomination to Mary Field fieldm [at] by March 23, 2020
