Mohan Receives "Preparing the Professoriate" Fellowship

Photo of MohanComputer Science PhD student, Sibin Mohan, has been named one of the 10 doctoral students selected as a 2007-08 Preparing the Professoriate Fellowship recipient through a University-wide competition.  He and the other winners were officially recognized at the graduate school fellowship dinner last December.

Preparing the Professoriate is a program, which gives faculty and doctoral students the opportunity to engage in a significant mentoring activity for an academic year.  It is a central component of NC State's attempt to enrich and improve the way in which graduate students are trained at this university by providing students with a hands-on teaching opportunity under a distinguished faculty mentor who is recognized for his/her teaching skills.

The program is open to doctoral students who plan careers as research/teaching scholars at colleges and universities.

The program sponsors nine workshops for participants throughout the academic year illuminating various aspects of college/university teaching. Participation in this program is a requirement for all NC State GAANN Fellows.

In addition, 10 doctoral students are selected for the program through a University-wide competition.  Each of these students will receive a $2,000 stipend.
For three of the last four years, a computer science graduate student has been selected for this highly competitive award.  Previous winners include Claris Castillo and David Wright.
Congratulations to Sibin and all program participants!
