Disclaimer: This information is being collected and evaluated by a committee of Truman students with technological support from ITS. The information you supply will not be made directly available to your mentor/nominee as part of the selection process, nor will it be made available to them once the selection process has been completed. After the final selections have been made, the identities of the students who have nominated faculty members will be separated from the information they submitted. This will be done to protect the identities of the submitters, while enabling this committee to compile data related to the backgrounds and experiences of those who chose to submit nominations for this award. Furthermore, during the selection process this committee will inform each nominated mentor of his/her status in order to prompt them for a short personal statement regarding their views on student research and a contact list of former research students. This prompt to nominated faculty will NOT include ANY information related to the identity of their nominator or any comments from the nomination form.
