The Karla Holloway Mentoring Award is an annual award honoring a nominated individual from a Collaborative institution for excellence in mentoring young women and/or girls of color.

During her academic career, Dr. Karla Holloway authored eight books and held appointments in the departments of English, the Law School, Women’s Studies, and African & African American Studies simultaneously. In the midst of this prolific professional career, Professor Holloway set aside time to advise students, she used her official positions to create opportunities and generate resources for marginalized students, and she advocated for generations of young scholars. Her substantive mentorship had meaningful and lasting impact for many women of color researchers.

The Karla Holloway Mentoring Award recognizes the crucial importance of mentoring for identifying, cultivating, and supporting women of color scholars.
