THE MAS PHD STUDENT MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
With generous support from the MAS PhD Student Fund, we are launching the inaugural MAS PhD Mentorship Program, which will take place during the 2020 IMA Doctoral Colloquium!
What is it?
Participating students meet with two assigned faculty mentors for 20-30 minutes during the IMA Doctoral Colloquium and receive feedback on a research proposal.
Those selected for the program will receive up to $500 as a reimbursement of conference travel costs (e.g., airfare, hotel) from the MAS PhD Student Fund.
Why should students apply?
This is a fantastic opportunity to spend one-on-one time with senior researchers and receive valuable feedback on your research proposal.
Who is eligible?
3rd and 4th year PhD students.
Colloquium attendees not participating in the mentorship program will engage in a 90-minute roundtable Q&A with resident faculty where they will have an opportunity to follow-up on topics discussed earlier in the day.
How do students apply?
To apply, send a completed research “pitch template” to Jason Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Willie Choi (email@example.com) by August 26, 2019.

Applicants will be notified of admittance decisions by Sept 9, 2019.
What happens after students are accepted to the MAS PhD Student Mentorship Program?
Once admitted, students will be informed of the faculty mentors with whom they are matched.
Prior to the Colloquium, matched students and faculty mentors can discuss whether any updates have been made to the research proposal, the aspects of the proposal for which feedback is desired, and any other pertinent issues related to the proposal.
