Request for Applications: Mentor-Fellows
The Mentor Fellows internship program is an activity of the Mentor-Connect: Leadership Development and Outreach for ATE-2 project (DUE #1501183). The Mentor Fellows internship prepares new mentors to help new-to-ATE college faculty learn to develop competitive ATE grant proposals and grow as leaders. Mentor Fellows also supports a purposeful turnover of mentors over time. Previous mentors transition to become special-purpose Mentors for other aspects of mentoring within the Mentor-Connect project. Mentor Fellows facilitates the involvement of more members of the ATE Community, promotes an infusion of new ideas, and engages new talent for this important work.

Those selected as Mentor Fellows have experience working within the NSF ATE community of programs and projects. Applicants should have experience writing or significantly contributing to a minimum of 2 successful ATE proposals and at least 3-5 years of involvement with an ATE center and/or project(s). Internships last approximately one year. Travel expenses and a stipend are paid to those who participate.

All applicants should be currently, or have very recently been, involved with the NSF Advanced Technological Education community. Endorsers can be from the same institution as the nominee. Members of the Mentor-Connect project team and/or selection team are not eligible to serve as endorsers.

The application should be accompanied by letters from those very familiar with the applicant’s work. Letters and applicant statements should specifically outline characteristics that make the applicant a good fit for this work, the applicant's interest in becoming a Mentor-Connect mentor, and the applicant's accomplishments with an emphasis on ATE Program involvement and grant experience.
