EMPOWER Program Applications Open for AY 23-24

The Enhanced Mentoring Program with Opportunities for Ways to Excel in Research (EMPOWER) is a mentoring program that supports faculty in their quest to achieve significant professional growth and advancement, including attaining success in research and scholarly activities. There is particular interest in supporting faculty who are women and/or from underrepresented groups.

The program sustains mentoring relationships through the EMPOWER Grant Program. This program was piloted in AY 2021-2022, and was adapted from the EMPOWER program that has been successfully implemented at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis, under the leadership of then-Vice Chancellor for Research Kody Varahramyan. EMPOWER is offered as a partnership between the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Dean of the Graduate School.

Applications are due by midnight on March 31, 2023.
