The MAST Center and the National Council of Family Relations (NCFR) are pleased to announce a free virtual mentoring event for emerging scholars in Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education (HMRE) at the 2020 NCFR Annual Conference (November 11-13, 2020). The event is designed to facilitate relationships among emerging scholars (current graduate students and early career professionals who are less than 5 years out from their terminal degree) and more established leaders in the research and practice fields related to family strengthening research and programming.
After attending a full group Zoom meeting, emerging scholars and mentors will be assigned to Zoom breakout rooms (1-2 mentors and ~6 emerging scholars) based on topical interest and will have ample opportunity to speak about professional development topics such as navigating graduate school, launching a research agenda, academic and non-academic career opportunities in HMRE-related work, and how to form partnerships with HMRE programs.
Due to limited space, registration is on a first come, first served basis – Register by Monday, October 26, 2020!
Emerging scholars: Those who are currently in graduate school or within 5 years or your terminal graduate degree. Space for this event is limited to 40 emerging scholars and spots will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Register to join as an emerging scholar.
Mentors: Those who are more seasoned researchers or practitioners interested in supporting new scholars working in HMRE-related fields. Mentors will be selected based on need and topic areas of expertise. Register to join as a mentor.
