Enrollment is open for ASHA’s Mentoring Academic Research Careers (MARC) program, which matches PhD students, post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty with seasoned faculty mentors.
The mentors provide guidance on strategies for success in preparing for an academic-research career, such as completing a dissertation, negotiating a start-up package, managing a research lab, and writing grants and journal submissions.
MARC is an online mentoring program, with communication through email, phone or video-conferencing. Some mentoring pairs arrange to meet at the ASHA convention or other conferences. The private MARC site on the online ASHA Community offers another valuable way to share information, resources and feedback.
In the 10 years of the program, there have been more than 500 protégé/mentor pairs. Most protégés are typically first-time MARC participants, although some return. Some mentors have been involved from the outset, and continue to serve as mentors for one or two protégés every year.
The program welcomes new mentors, who cite several advantages to participating: learning how to mentor in a more formal way, getting to know a faculty member with different research interests and academic setting, and forging relationships with younger academics.
Protégés appreciate being able to seek advice from someone outside of their own institution, and knowing that their mentor is available and willing to answer questions and share tips and ideas.
Enrollment closes Sept. 4.
