New Student Mentorship Program
Applications are now closed for this program. Current applicants will be notified shortly with details about the mentorship program at the 2012 WCH.
Would you like to have help making the most of attending the World Congress?
SSAR will be introducing a mentorship program for undergraduate and graduate students for whom the World Congress of Herpetology (Vancouver, August 8-14, 2012) will be their first national or international herpetology meeting. Mentorship positions will be limited to seven applicants, chosen at random, with the expectation that this program will be expanded in future years. Mentors will be advanced graduate students who have attended international herpetology meetings in previous years and who can orient you to the meeting, help make introductions, and enhance your overall meeting experience.
1. Have you ever attended a World Congress of Herpetology or Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists?
2. What is your field of study? (Be as broad or as specific as you choose.) What is your level of study? (I.e., are you in high school, an undergraduate, or graduate student?)
3. What do you hope to get out of the mentorship program?
Your answers will be used to help us improve the program in coming years, and if you are selected for the program, to help pair you with an appropriate mentor.
