Barbara Zsembik received the 2008 William R. Jones Outstanding Mentor Award
The 2008 Outstanding Mentor Award is made by the McKnight Doctoral Fellowship program, funded by the Florida Education Fund.

William L. Jeffries IV, M.A., M.P.H. writes in his nomination letter: "I am extremely blessed to have Barb as my mentor and chair of my dissertation committee. Throughout the last 4½ years, she has provided me with exemplary mentorship, which has resulted in me acquiring considerable success as a graduate student. She has devoted a great deal of time—both inside and outside the classroom—to equipping me with the skills necessary to become a competent sociologist."

The McKnight Doctoral Fellowship program is designed to increase the number of African Americans and Latinos who receive Ph.D.s in crucial disciplines in which they have been historically underrepresented. Increasing the number of African American and Latino Ph.D.s is expected to diversify faculty in Florida's universities and colleges.
