Call for Applications: Sylvia Lane Mentor Fellowship

The Sylvia Lane Mentor Fellowship provides an opportunity for early career female scholars working on food, agricultural, or resource issues to collaborate with an established expert at another university, institution, or firm.

At least one (1) Fellowship of up to $2,500 will be awarded for use during the 2016 calendar year. The funding is designed to cover the costs of travel and expenses for the awardee to work directly with the mentor on a specific project. Preference will be given to new mentoring relationships as opposed to continuing an existing one.

The application deadline is October 12, 2015. The award will be announced in January 2015.

To apply, please submit the following:
  • Cover letter outlining proposed plan for mentorship, including contact information for the mentor, proposed dates of collaboration, and outputs expected
  • Current CV for nominee
  • Research proposal outlining the research project that you will work on with your mentor (maximum 3 single-spaced pages)
  • Letter of recommendation
  • Letter of intent to collaborate from the proposed mentor
  • Budget
Applications should be submitted in a single PDF format to Brian Mondragón Jones, at by October 12, 2015. If you have any questions, please contact Brian by email or by phone at (414) 918-3190.
