Marynel Vázquez named the 2024 recipient of the Yale Graduate School’s Graduate Mentor Award in Physical Sciences and Engineering

April 10, 2024

The Graduate Mentor Award recognizes faculty members who are exceptional in fostering the intellectual, professional, and personal development of their students. It is the university’s principal award for superb teaching, advising, and mentoring of graduate students.

Each year, a selection committee comprised of previous Graduate Mentor Award winners, and delegates from the Graduate Student Assembly and the Graduate School, receives scores of letters from graduate students nominating outstanding mentors from across our campus. We are grateful to everyone who took the time to submit thoughtful nominations acknowledging the dedication of these most generous scholars and teachers.

The Graduate Mentor Award winners will be recognized at this year’s Graduate School Convocation ceremony in May at the Yale University Art Gallery.

Congratulations, Marynel!
