Mentors

Senior faculty members are available to serve as mentors at the 8 participating Institutions. In addition, scholars can select qualified mentors at outside Institutions to complement their training team. All mentors must have an established record of research productivity, have grant support and have successfully trained scholars to become independent investigators. Applicants will need a letter of support from both mentors. Contact a member of the advisory committee if you need assistance in identifying mentors.
