Fostering Mentoring Partnerships

Mentoring is a proven and powerful driver for career development and particularly for retaining women in science. AWARD pairs each fellow with a mentor—a senior professional who volunteers to guide the fellow’s career path.

Each AWARD Fellow is mentored for one year as part of the fellowship package. In the second year of the fellowship, all fellows pass on their knowledge by mentoring junior women scientists, thereby providing an opportunity to practice their leadership skills.
