The APSA Women’s Research Mentoring Workshop will be held at the APSA Centennial Center in Washington, D.C., on October 12-13, 2018. The workshop is funded by the National Science Foundation and the American Political Science Association and will be an opportunity for women in all subfields of political science to network with peer scholars and female mentors in their field and receive focused expert feedback on their research.
Apply Now! Applications are due June 30, 2018.
The workshop will consist of a two-day program, beginning the morning of October 12, and ending by 3:00 pm on October 13. Travel, lodging, and meals will be covered for all participants and mentors.
Participants will be arranged into small groups and assigned to senior mentors based on their research area. Each attendee will circulate a working research paper or similar product (e.g., book chapter, grant proposal) to group members prior to the workshop, and will receive at least one hour of feedback from her working group. There will also be sessions on career development facilitated by senior scholars, such as: publishing, developing a tenure case, writing grant proposals, effective and efficient teaching, conferences and networking, and work/life balance.
Scholars who self-identify as women, non-binary or genderqueer, and who received a Ph.D. in political science from a U.S. institution in the last 4 years, are encouraged to apply.
