John R. Raymond Fellowship

The John R. Raymond (JRR) Mentoring Fellowship is intended to provide financial support for a selected full-time female faculty member to initiate a relationship with a mentor who is an expert in her chosen field.  The female faculty’s field of interest may be in research, clinical practice, or education/teaching. 

The fellowship is administered by the Women Scholars Initiative (WSI) with support from the Office of the Provost.
