Julie Champion, assistant professor in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, has earned the Junior Faculty Outstanding Undergraduate Research Mentor Award for 2015.

The award, issued every year by the Georgia Tech Faculty Honors Committee, honors a faculty member who has had “direct impact and involvement with undergraduates doing research, increasing their intellectual integrity and research scholarship and impact on their postgraduate success.”

In selecting Champion for the award, the faculty committee noted her success in mentoring several President’s Undergraduate Research Awards winners as well as heartfelt letters from students, the diversity of the students mentored and student involvement in published papers from the Champion lab.

“Mentoring undergraduates is one of the best parts of my job — to see them start fresh in the lab and mature into researchers who make important contributions to our work,” Champion said. “I enjoy talking with them about their future plans and weighing the choices they have as they start their new careers. I am always happy when they come back and tell me about the success they are having after they leave Georgia Tech, whether in graduate school or in industry.”

Champion will be honored on April 17 at the Faculty and Staff Honors Luncheon.
