The PEER Women in Science Mentorship Program consists of groups of women in senior and junior
faculty positions. Each group will have one senior faculty mentor and two to four more junior faculty
from the same university. For one year, these small groups will build personal and career development
goals in topics such as networking, research proposal writing, and research paper publication. Mentees
and mentors will receive a three-day professional training to provide cohorts with tools to improve
their mentorship experience as well as kick off the year. The program will end with a competitive,
$10,000 research grant opportunity for the junior faculty members.
Eligible Countries in Sub-Saharan Africa:
Angola, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia
DEADLINE: 16 March 2018
