With generous support from the MAS PhD Student Fund, we are pleased to announce that the fourth annual MAS PhD Mentorship Program will take place during the 2023 IMA Doctoral Colloquium!

What is it?
Participating students meet with one assigned faculty mentor for about 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 more experienced researchers and receive valuable feedback on your research proposal.

Who is eligible?
3rd and 4th year PhD students.

How do students apply?
To apply, simply select the PhD Mentorship Program option when applying for the MAS Doctoral Colloquium and download and submit your research proposal template HERE by October 15, 2022. Applicants will be notified of admittance decisions by October 31, 2022.

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.
