Volunteer for ASEEES Mentoring Program

Our field boasts a wide range of area studies and disciplinary knowledge, but how one makes one’s way through dissertation rites, funding cycles, postdocs, job markets, and non-academic career trajectories is often left as much to creative invention as it is to shared advice. Early-career scholars rightly lean on their advisors, their universities, and their peer networks with these issues, but the advantage of an association like ASEEES is that we can offer a good deal more.

In a pilot project, ASEEES is sponsoring a new network to match volunteer mentors and mentees who are interested in conversation on these and other topics over the course of a single academic year.

For more information on the new mentoring program and to complete a form to request a mentor or volunteer to be a mentor, view our new mentoring program page.  The applications are due May 2.

UPDATE: We received a very positive response for the mentoring program.  The application site for the mentees is now closed, but you can still volunteer to be a mentor!  It is a great way to network with and help younger specialists.
