Apply now to the Global Mentorship Program

The Global Mentorship Program (GMP) supports and sustains the interest of junior researchers with a focus on professional development within the field and engaging in ARVO. The program requires a six-month commitment from both mentors and mentees. ARVO is currently accepting applications for the Jan. – June 2018 cohort. The deadline to apply is Nov. 30.

Ideal mentors are at a mid- to- senior level in their career and who want to help develop trainee and early career members. Mentors will provide explicit and implicit lessons related to (non-scientific) career advice, general work-life balance and guidance for actively engaging in ARVO.

Participating mentees must be a member-in-training or an early career professional (within the first three years) and an ARVO member for at least one year at the time of application.

Program components include

  • One-on-one mentoring focused primarily around the participant’s chosen goals
  • Monthly discussion topics (such as goal setting, career opportunities in eye and vision science, techniques for balancing career and personal life, etc.)

For more information and to apply by the Nov. 30 deadline, visit www.arvo.org/GMP.
