ASI Mentor-Mentee Program
Supporting our student members by providing mentoring opportunities
EOI Submission Round: June 10th - 24th 2022
Access to senior researchers as formal mentors can be difficult and students often miss out on informal mentoring relationships that develop in the workplace and outside work.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has further impacted opportunities for students to establish or maintain mentoring relationships. To address this, we are piloting a brand new mentoring program that will use a mentoring software platform that provides the best possible match using an algorithm.
This program aims to support graduate students (Honours, Masters and PhD) at the earliest phases of their careers.
Mentors and mentees will be asked to first submit an expression of interest (EOI) in the program so we can gauge the level of interest and better understand our software requirements. We will then contact those who have submitted an EOI with a more detailed questionnaire.
Key Features of the Program
✔️ Mentor-mentee pairs will be matched based on location, interests and other factors.
✔️ Participants will be invited to an online webinar at the start of the program to provide training for both mentor and mentee to get the most out of the pairing.
✔️ There will be additional webinars to provide support throughout the program.
✔️ The pilot program will run for 6 months, and we encourage mentors and mentees to meet at least once per month (online or in person).
- All current ASI Student Members are eligible to be Mentees, including those who will complete their studies during the program.
- All current ASI Ordinary Members who have had their PhD conferred are eligible to be Mentors. Those in academic, industry or government roles alike are encouraged to apply.
