Outstanding Fellowship Mentor Awards - University of Houston
Skip to main content
Each year, the Office of Undergraduate Research and Major Awards recognizes a faculty or staff member who has made outstanding contributions to support UH fellowships applicants. Honorees often distinguish themselves with a demonstrated involvement in outreach initiatives, participation in campus nomination interview committees, the creation of fellowships-related programming, and directly advising candidates. Their efforts contribute to fostering a culture of major awards excellence at the University of Houston. The recipient of this honor is announced during the Undergraduate Scholars and Major Awards Dinner held in the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Pavilion every April. If you have a nominee for the Outstanding Fellowship Mentor Award, please contact Dr. Ben Rayder.
