The Association for Jewish Studies invites early career scholars and graduate students to participate in the annual conference’s mentorship program. Mentees will be matched with a senior scholar to discuss various aspects related to career development and the publication and grant-writing processes, among other potential topics. Mentees will meet with their mentors at a mutually agreed upon time during the conference.
To apply to the mentorship program, complete the application form by Thursday, November 15. Applicants, who must be current 2018–2019 AJS members, will have the opportunity to name your top three choices of mentors from the list of participating scholars.
