Lee Osterhout received the Davida Teller Distinguished Faculty Mentor Award.

This award is given by the Graduate Program Action Committee for outstanding service to, and excellence in, graduate mentorship and training. Lee was honored for his work in furthering the education of the graduate students he advises both formally and informally. He encourages his students to pursue their intellectual interests even if they are outside the immediate scope of his own research. This extends beyond his formal advisees to graduate students to whom he is not the titular advisor, helping them develop projects and playing a substantial role in their graduate careers.
