TCPW Undergraduate Advising Award

The TCPW Undergraduate Advising Award recognizes undergraduate faculty advisors who have distinguished themselves in providing assistance and advice to their advisee students and who have made a significant impact on the academic experience of these students.

The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women is an international network of Penn alumnae. These leaders, by power of their example, support, foster, and promote the advancement of women and women’s issues within the University, thus enriching the University community as a whole. Beginning in 2012, to mark the organization’s quarter-century milestone, the TCPW 25th Anniversary Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising was established. The winners of this award receive $2,500 each and are celebrated at the Fall TCPW Conference.


Nominations of standing faculty may be made by an undergraduate or any member of Penn’s community for someone other than oneself and must be submitted together with an essay, written by the nominator—not to exceed 250 words in length—supporting the nomination.


Nominations for the 2024 TCPW Undergraduate Advising Award should be completed via the Online Nomination Form no later than May 1, 2024.
