Goldrick-Rab Receives Scholars Mentoring Award

August 15, 2011

Sara Goldrick-Rab has received a Scholars Mentoring Award from the William T. Grant Foundation. The award facilitates the growth of scholars as strong mentors attuned to the career development challenges disproportionately faced by their junior colleagues of color. It also helps mentees become more skilled researchers with broader professional networks and resources. Goldrick-Rab is mentoring Jesus Renteria, a second-year doctoral student. They share a common research interest in inequality in higher education and the ways that race, social class, and gender affect college students.
