Mentee Application Form

Mentor Application Form

We will update the links and the dates on the website next week.

Mentee applicants can choose one of the following professional outcomes (or write their own if nothing fits). Mentor applicants are asked to rank the outcomes

in the order of their comfort and experience mentoring in these areas:

  • Writing a Post/Article – Are you interested in writing a post or article on Research Administration but feel like you could use some assistance in writing it?  Join this cohort and work together to write effective and informative articles.  Posts/Articles can be posted online as a blog (SRA Catalyst), internally on the community page, or in a newsletter or publication. Topics are individual choice, and the group will work together as peer editors.
  • Presentation at a Conference – Do you want to present at a regional conference? Work with a mentor’s guidance to prepare a presentation for application to NCURA Region I’s Spring Meeting. Topics are individual choice. OVPR will fund mileage to and from the regional meeting to present if selected.
  • Present a Poster –Do you want to share your knowledge without having to present? Would a smaller scale be more interesting to you?  Work with a mentor’s guidance to prepare and create a poster for application to NCURA Region I’s Spring Meeting Innovation Suite.  OVPR will fund poster printing and mileage to and from the regional meeting to showcase poster if selected.
  • CRA – Do you wish to study to take the CRA Exam next year?  Join to study with a guidance from successful CRAs. The program lasts for a full academic year.
  • Learn/Add a new skill set such as: Learn a new sponsor, Learn a new contract/agreement type, Complex proposal management, Writing Standard Operating Procedures or documenting a workflow, How to manage & lead a working group. Work on skills such as task management and meeting management.
