The Women Scholars Initiative, with support from the Office of the Provost, announces the John R. Raymond (JRR) Mentoring Fellowship. This fellowship will provide some financial support for a selected full-time female faculty member to initiate a relationship with a mentor affiliated with an outside institution. The female faculty member's field of interest may be in research, clinical practice, education or teaching and the mentor should be someone who is considered an expert in his or her chosen field.
This fellowship has been instituted in honor of John R. Raymond, M.D., who served as provost and vice president of academic affairs at MUSC from 2002 to 2010, and currently serves as president and CEO of the Medical College of Wisconsin. Throughout his tenure at MUSC, Raymond was a advocate for women faculty and instrumental in establishing the Women Scholars Initiative.
