“The prestigious SEEDS ‘You Choose’ Leadership Awards are given annually to nominated faculty members and are centered around constructive research, collaborative projects, mentoring, workshops, and seminars that increase diversity awareness and serve to advance the awardees’ own research efforts as well as areas of academic concentration and their professional profiles in academia, the University of Miami, and beyond,” said SEEDS Program Manager, Marisol Capellan.

Established to promote academic support for UM faculty, the awards offer up to $2,500 to each winner who may use the funds for professional skills workshops, mentoring programs, seminar series, networking events, visits by experts and distinguished speakers, collaborative research, and leadership activities.  

Eligibility has expanded to include all disciplines across UM’s three campuses. Tenured, tenure-track, research faculty and UM Libraries faculty are eligible, and postdoctoral researchers and graduate students may apply in partnership with UM faculty.

SEEDS is now accepting all applications for the “You Choose” Leadership Awards until October 10, 2017, and winners will be announced on October.
