Award nominations have closed. Winners will be announced at the conference and will be acknowledged on the IINSPIRE LSAMP website following the event.
The IINSPIRE Alliance Recognition Awards Program selects deserving individuals from the IINSPIRE Alliance community for recognition in several categories.
STUDENT PRESENTATION AWARDS
Awards will be given for the top three posters, as evaluated by a panel of judges. In addition, a “favorite poster” award will be announced based on votes by conference attendees. Awards will also be given for the top oral presentations by students.
AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN MENTORING
Mentoring is of primary importance within the Alliance, and can be recognized at any level where it occurs. Eligible mentors include those who are actively involved with LSAMP students and assist students in setting and achieving their own academic, personal and professional goals, and through this work contribute significantly to achievement of LSAMP program goals. Any individual or organization affiliated with the IINSPIRE Alliance may be nominated for this award.
AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ALUMNI
We have many IINSPIRE LSAMP students graduating, entering into careers, and doing interesting and amazing work. We want to keep in touch with all of our alumni and share and recognize their accomplishments.
STOKES AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO THE IINSPIRE ALLIANCE
Individuals, teams and organizations associated with the IINSPIRE Alliance are eligible for this award. The sole criterion is service at an exemplary level, in pursuit of the alliance’s primary goal to broaden participation of students from groups historically underrepresented in STEM fields.
