The Obama Administration is seeking nominations for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring. The award recognizes outstanding mentors that “enhance the participation and retention of students and early-career investigators in STEM [science, technology, engineering, and mathematics] disciplines, with a special emphasis on those who might not otherwise have considered or had access to opportunities in STEM fields, including women, minorities, and persons with disabilities,” according to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Nominations for individuals or organizations will be accepted until 6 June 2012. More information is available at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgmsumm.jsp?pimsid=5473.
