The goal of the ADVANCE Scholar Award is to encourage research, leadership, and outreach to underserved communities and scholars. The award highlights and celebrates the contributions that STEM faculty at UC Davis have made to their fields through outstanding scholarship and mentorship. The recipients receive a small cash award and deliver a distinguished campus lecture at the annual ADVANCE Award Symposium. The Symposium is widely advertised with the intent of bringing together a multi-disciplinary audience of faculty, post-doctoral scholars, students, and community members.
UC Davis ranks as one of the leading institutions in diversity. With your help we can recognize faculty who advance diverse perspectives and gender equity in STEM through their teaching, research and service.
