Dear IARR members,
Are you an established relationship scholar and want to share your wisdom?
Are you a graduate student/early career relationship scholar who would welcome mentoring from a senior scholar in the field?
Sign up for the IARR mentoring program. The IARR Mentoring Committee is excited to announce a new program designed to help young scholars navigate the world of relationship science. The broad goal of the IARR Mentoring Program is to match graduate students and early career professionals (mentees) with senior scholars in the field (mentors) in order to provide support to early career professionals with their professional and scholarly goals. Mentorship is expected to last approximately one year (August 2015-July 2016).
Detailed information on the pairing of mentors and mentees, expectations for the program, and other topics can be found in the attached guidelines (view attached document here). We view this program as a unique opportunity for professional development for graduate students, early career professionals, and tenured faculty alike.
Target eligibility for mentees and mentors:
- Mentees will typically range from graduate students within 2 years of finishing their terminal degree (MA or PhD) to early career professionals up to 4 years post-doctoral.
- Mentors will typically have at least 8 years of experience in the field (i.e., 8 years post highest qualification).
We are seeking both mentees and mentors. If you are interested in being a mentee or mentor, please complete the appropriate survey in qualtrics which will assess your interest in the program, goals for the program, and other information that we will use to help identify mentee-mentor pairs.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dr. Ashley Randall (Ashley.K.Randall@asu.edu) or Nickola Overall (firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to hearing from you regarding this exciting opportunity!
