The White House has announced the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring. Currently inviting nominations for both institutional and individual awards, the program recognizes high quality mentoring in all fields of science, including biomedicine. Awardees are selected based on their track record of enhancing participation and retention of individuals who might not otherwise have considered careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The awards are administered by National Science Foundation.

If you know of individuals or institutions that have a record of high-quality mentoring, especially as it relates to diversity, you are encouraged to submit a nomination. Candidates can be nominated by a colleague, administrator, or a student.  Self-nominations also are accepted. The submission deadline is October 5, 2011. For more information, view the grant announcement on the NIH website.
