Sponsor: John and Jane Mather Foundation for Science and the Arts
Program: John Mather Nobel Scholar
Thank you for agreeing to provide a mentor assessment on behalf of Sample Applicant's John Mather Nobel Scholar application. Your mentor assessment is due by Sunday, July 9, 2023.
Recipients of the John Mather Nobel Scholar award will receive a travel allowance towards the cost of presenting research papers at professional conferences.
The objective of the John Mather Nobel Scholars (JMNS) Program is to award it to eligible GSFC interns who think highly of Goddard and would love nothing more than to eventually work at Goddard. So we ask you as the intern's mentor to consider this objective as you complete this assessment. We also ask that mentors whose intern is awarded this scholarship consider supporting them for a future GSFC internship or fellowship each subsequent year while completing their academic degrees, and further towards hiring.
For additional information about this program please visit the program website.
All mentor assessments are confidential. Applicants will not see any comments or rankings disclosed within the support forms. We appreciate and respect your honesty in filling out this form.
