In this mentoring program, ACUR wants to support student researchers with the opportunity to receive mentorship from professionals in all fields in academia and industry.

We believe that research should be introduced early in their education during their undergraduate studies. Not every student can afford to continue onto a master’s degree and PhD and those that do face job uncertainty and risk being overqualified.

To help the next generation face rapidly changing technology and an age of information, we advocate and strive to provide a platform for proactive students that are completing research in their undergraduate studies and want to further support their growth because the need for highly valuable skills like critical thinking and research in the next generation is paramount and requires support.

The aim of the mentoring program is for the mentor to provide students guidance on:

– increasing the student’s undergraduate research profile

– CV and interview help

– career/industry career advice

– research presentation preparation and advice

– networking advice.

Program guideline:

The program will include a 1 hour weekly mentor-mentee online during August and September before the conference in October.
