Reminder: Mentoring Event
2018 National Research Conference on Early Childhood

Emerging scholars are invited to register for a Mentoring/Networking Lunch at the 2018 NRCEC Conference on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 from 12:00 to 1:15 pm . Those emerging scholars (e.g., undergraduate & graduate students, postdocs and/or early career researchers) who are interested in participating in this lunch event will be matched with mentors, who are leading researchers in the field, based upon their area of research interests and expressed professional development needs.

Emerging scholars also may opt in to participate in newly developed Expanded Mentoring Activities .
