Graduate Student Mentoring Program
We are planning for our seventh annual Graduate Student Mentoring Program (GSMP) for the Studying and Self-Regulated Learning Special Interest Group of AERA. As part of this initiative, graduate students will have opportunities to receive mentoring from scholars who share similar research interests. The program will be held concurrently with the 2020 Annual Meeting of AREA in San Francisco. The GSMP committee will review applications and will notify applicants regarding their acceptance into the mentoring program.
