Call for Applications for the Mentorship Program: Mentee's & Mentors


As a mentee, you are given the following opportunities to enhance your career:
  • Identify successful mentoring connections.
  • Gain professional support during career development, advancement and transition.
  • Develop important relationships and contacts across AAEA, Academia and Industry.
As a volunteer mentor, you have the opportunity to share your knowledge, your experience, and your insights with the next generation of leaders working in applied economics and related fields. Mentors should have at least seven years of experience/tenure in their current profession and demonstrated excellence in their career. Past mentors have said:
“I think this program is great and I only wish I had a formal Mentor on my early days in the profession.”

“This has been a terrific opportunity for me and I am really enjoying it. As would be expected this has forced me to look at my own career and how I am working.”

“The great thing about this program is that you can spend as little, or as much time on it as you want.”

To apply to become a mentee, please fill out the AAEA Mentorship Program- Mentee Application by February 20, 2016.


The AAEA Mentoring Program promises to be an exciting and rewarding journey for all involved. We encourage all AAEA members to participate.

The ideal mentee must possess a strong desire to expand his/her professional knowledge and skills and demonstrate willing to invest in his/her own professional development. Mentee applicants should be in the early stages of their current career (years 1-5). Graduate students may apply if they plan to graduate and begin employment no later than September 2016.

For questions please contact Brian Mondragon Jones at (414) 918-3190.
