Applications for the SCWH Early Career mentorship project are due by May 20 (if you wish to be paired before the meeting in Pittsburgh). The committee wants to clarify that it accepts mentee applications from advanced ABDs heading out on the job market as well as recent PhDs.

Those who are interested in serving as either mentors or mentees should submit the application and a brief CV to <bever-m@mssu.edu>, Megan L. Bever, Assistant Professor of History, Missouri Southern State University.

**********************************************************************

The SCWH Early Career Committee is embarking on a mentorship project that will pair recent PhDs in the early stages of their careers with a more experienced mentor outside of their university. Mentorship could take many forms, from aiding mentees with early career issues, to support and feedback on writing, to portfolio advice. Ideally every mentor would have one mentee, although depending on the level of interest, mentors may choose to take on a second scholar.

The Committee is seeking applications from experienced scholars who are willing to serve as mentors and from early-career scholars who would like a mentor. We hope to pair mentors/mentees in advance of the 2018 SCWH Biennial Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to allow for meetings at that conference. For those unable to attend SCWH, mentors and mentees will continue to be matched through the 2018 Southern Historical Association Meeting in Birmingham, Alabama.

Those who are interested in serving as either mentors or mentees should submit the application and a brief CV to bever-m@mssu.edu no later than May 20, 2018. (pdf form for Mentors or Mentees)
