The APSA Women’s Research Mentoring Workshop will be held virtually in late Spring 2021. The workshop will be an opportunity for women in all subfields of political science to network with peer scholars and women mentors in their field and receive focused expert feedback on their research. The workshop was developed through the APSA Presidential Task Force on Women’s Advancement in the Profession and is funded by the American Political Science Association and the National Science Foundation.

Apply Now! Applications are due March 25, 2021.

The workshop will consist of a 2-day program. 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, who received a Ph.D. in political science in the last 5 years, and who currently or will soon hold a political science academic position in the U.S. are eligible to apply.
