Mentoring Award

This APS Unit Award is intended to recognize DPF members who have had an exceptional impact as mentors of particle physics scientists and students. 
This mentoring could be through teaching or research or science-related activities and is meant to recognize current achievements as well as those spanning a career.

Examples of contributions honored by this award include:

•	Exceptional mentoring of early career particle physicists;
•	Sustained commitment to mentoring early career particle physicists from traditionally under-represented backgrounds;
•	A leadership role in developing early career research and career development activities.

Early career particle physicists include undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and professionals early in their careers, 
such as assistant professors or assistant scientists. The award will consist of a certificate indicating the citation chosen by the selection committee.
