A NEW FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM LAUNCHED BY
MENTORING AT CRITICAL TRANSITIONS(MCT)
with generous support from the Wakeham Fund
Now entering its fifth year, UC Davis’ Mentoring at Critical Transitions—a Faculty Development Program is pleased to announce a new, competitive awards program for participating faculty.
Up to five $10,000 fellowships will be awarded for faculty mentors to help support one or more of their graduate student mentees.
The general parameters of this competitive fellowship program are as follows. More specific guidelines will be provided in the fall.
• To be eligible to apply, faculty must attend at least three of the four MCT workshops or panels
offered during the academic year of 2014-2015.
• Eligible faculty who wish to enter the competition must submit a proposal, written with their
mentee(s), showing how the mentor-mentee relationship can be enhanced from the skills or
concepts shared from one or a combination of MCT workshops to benefit their graduate
students’ successful and timely completion of their degree objective.
• Proposals will be due at the end of spring quarter 2015.
• These proposals will be reviewed by a panel of faculty and graduate students, and five winners
will be selected.
• The faculty winners will each receive $10,000 that they will award as fellowships to one or more
of their graduate student mentees to promote the latter’s research and/or writing efforts. Funds
will be available to award to graduate student mentees for the academic year 2015-2016.
• The winning faculty will be recognized with a plaque for excellence in mentoring at a special
awards presentation during the Week of Orientation and Welcome (WOW) in fall 2015.
