CSWEP: Mentoring and Networking Opportunities
CeMENT Mentoring Program
The mentoring workshops consist of a two-day program in which participants are arranged into small groups based on their research area under the direction of senior (tenured) faculty mentors. Group members and mentors discuss and offer feedback on the participants’ research. Workshops also typically include larger how-to sessions on topics such as: publishing, developing a tenure case, writing a grant, teaching, conferences and networking, and work/life balance.
CeMENT Mentoring Materials
Participants in our mentoring workshops historically have received binders of professional development materials relating to publishing, teaching, grants, and other relevant topics. CSWEP is now making these materials to everyone.
The Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund provides mentoring support in the form of supplemental travel expenses to encourage senior mentoring women and institutions to incorporate mentoring of junior professionals into their programs. It is designed to provide travel funds to permit mentors to either extend a visit to an institution for the purpose of mentoring or to visit an institution for that purpose alone.
Summer Fellows Program
Sponsored by the American Economic Association and originally by a National Science Foundation grant, the fellowship allows senior graduate students and junior faculty to spend a summer in residence at a sponsoring research institution.
