Christina Manthos Mentoring Award

Society of Women in Urology, Inc.
Application or LOI Due Date
Brief Description

Christina Manthos was an extraordinary young urologist whose life and career were sadly curtailed by breast cancer. As a means of perpetuating the flame of her inspiration and honoring her memory, SWIU established an annual award to recognize those men or women who demonstrate extraordinary mentoring skills in supporting the career of a female urologist. SWIU believes that a mentor is an important element in the life of each professional woman and wants to encourage and reward those who set a good example.


Appropriate candidates for this award are men or women who have demonstrated extraordinary mentoring skills to female urologists.


The SWIU Board of Directors reviews the candidates at the Winter Board Meeting and will present the award to the person that best exemplifies the mentoring traits that the award intends to encourage.  Candidates will be considered in subsequent years if they are not selected in the year nominated.


  • Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2020
