HTRS Mentor Match Program

This program matches a ConECCTOR member (the mentor) with a Fellows Network member (the mentee).

Mentor/mentee pairs are self-directed and encouraged to explore a wide range of career development topics (e.g. how to achieve a junior faculty position at an academic institution, how to establish a research career post-fellowship, etc.).

Visit the HTRS Mentor Match Program page for more information.

If you are interested in finding a mentor or being a mentor, email Jennifer Ziegler, Director, Award Programs and Career Development at [email protected]

Need assistance with grant writing?

HTRS offers Grant Review Workshops to members of the Fellows Network and ConNECCTOR. You'll receive direct feedback on your project/application and there is potential for ongoing discussions with colleagues and mentors.

Grant Review Process

  • Submit grant-specific application materials and/or a description of the project, along with your career goals
  • If accepted, an HTRS faculty member will review your materials
  • After reviewing your materials, the reviewer will share their feedback with you during a 60-minute session.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, email Jennifer Ziegler, Director, Award Programs and Career Development at [email protected]

Due to conflicts of interest, we cannot accept applications for HTRS MRA or ATHN/DREAM Awards.
