UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Every year, an exceptional mentor and women who have shown remarkable professionalism and leadership at Penn State are recognized with two awards: the Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award and the Achieving Women Award. Nominations are currently being sought for both of these awards.

To submit nominations, visit this site. Submissions are due no later than Tuesday, Feb.12.

Recipients selected for these awards will be honored at the annual luncheon, which will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, April 26, at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center on the University Park campus.

The Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award is presented each spring to a University employee, regardless of gender, who exemplifies Schraer's giving of herself as a mentor and who has voluntarily, over a period of time, helped others recognize and achieve their potential. Consideration is given to employees (administrators, faculty, technical service and staff members) who have a record of outstanding mentoring service that goes beyond the requirements of their employment duties and responsibilities.

The Achieving Women Award recognizes seven Penn State women who have shown notable leadership and accomplishment in their fields and have gone beyond the requirements of employment duties and responsibilities in their support of the University’s diversity efforts, promotion of equal opportunity, or contribution to humanitarian causes and public service activities. These awards are presented to current Penn State employees and students from each of the following categories: faculty, staff exempt, staff nonexempt, administrator, technical service, and undergraduate and graduate students (including postdoctoral fellows and scholars).
