IMPORTANT INFORMATION – 2021 DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS AND FACULTY
We are pleased to announce that the second annual MAS PhD Mentorship Program will take place during the 2021 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.
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 Q&A session 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 proposal template to Jason Brown (email@example.com) and Martin Holzhacker (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Saturday, October 31, 2020.
The research proposal template can be FOUND HERE, and a sample completed template can be FOUND HERE.
Applicants will be notified of admittance decisions by November 15, 2020.
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.
