Holley-Bockelmann receives 2022 mentor award
Kelly Holley-Bockelmann, Stevenson Professor of Physics, has received the 2022 Mentor Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The award is for individuals who have mentored significant numbers of underrepresented students (e.g., women, minorities, and persons with disabilities) who are working toward doctorates in STEM. Holley-Bockelmann is being recognized for her leadership of the Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s-to-Ph.D. Bridge Program. Since its founding in September 2004, the mission of the program has been to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in astronomy, physics, materials science, and biology.
