Thank Your Mentor

In April of 2018, students were invited to handwrite notes of appreciation for their mentors that were on display in the RMC. Following Inquiry Week, mentors were sent the handwritten notes from students with additional recognition of their effort from OURI.

Outstanding Undergraduate Research Mentor Award

Students are also invited to nominate their research mentor through the Outstanding Undergraduate Research Mentor Award. This award honors individuals who demonstrate exemplary mentorship to Rice undergraduate students in research, design and creative works projects. The Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry is accepting nominations from current Rice undergraduate students who would like to acknowledge the impact their research mentor has had on them and their experience. Honorees will be announced at the Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium award ceremony. Nomination deadline is April 7, 2021. Read more about the nomination process on the award webpage
