What is this award?

This award's purpose is to recognize the vital role honors thesis or project mentors perform in the education of honors students. Over three-quarters of honors students are involved with research and projects, and that work would be impossible without the guidance of their mentors. 

The University Honors Program will send out a call for nominations to students through the Honorable Messenger, our weekly electronic newsletter. The nomination form will ask for the nominator's information, the nominee's information, and an explanation of how your honors mentor has benefited you and your experience as an Honor's student at Iowa.
