Doctoral Mentoring Program

The Div J GSC has been hard at work planning a new pilot mentoring program for this year for doctoral students. The Doctoral Mentoring Program offers a supportive transition experience for first-year doctoral students by pairing them with upper-level doctoral students who can help unlock the hidden curriculum of academia. We hope this mentoring program engages students’ resource-sharing, constructive feedback, and community that position first-year students for a successful doctoral journey. 

The program structure for mentors/mentees includes 1 (one) virtual meeting between September and December and 1 (one) virtual meeting between January and April, and an in-person meet-up at the 2022 AERA annual conference. 

To apply:

If you are interested in participating, please apply by Monday, October 25, 2021. Space in this program is limited and contingent on the number of mentors that sign up. Participants will be selected based on need and research interest matches.
