Recognize Leaders Who Have Made a Difference in Your Life and Career
Why Honor a Mentor?
What is Honor a Mentor?
- It is an important way to recognize someone who has positively impacted yours and others’ professional life.
- Funds support current KON projects such as resurrecting the Undergraduate Research Journal (URJHS) and revitalizing the website.
Kappa Omicron Nu’s Honor a Mentor program is a way to honor someone exceptional, living or deceased, who made a positive influence on your professional development, or who facilitated the achievement of your scholarship, leadership and research goals.
How Does It Work?
You may personally nominate someone or nominate as a group, to recognize the Mentor. Awards could also coincide with retirement or a significant achievement in the life or career of the Mentor. At least one donor or the honoree must be a member of Kappa Omicron Nu. If someone has been previously recognized as a Mentor, additional funds can be raised to honor that person at the next higher Mentor level.
Levels of Recognition:
- Mentor $1,000
- Master Mentor $2,000
- Maestro Mentor $3,000
Nomination forms are open all year. All mentor levels will be presented with an engraved award at Conclave during Conclave years or at the virtual Annual Assembly on alternate years. At the Master and Maestro Level, the mentors’ registration fee will be waived during Conclave years.
