The Mentoring Committee of Division 52 has developed a pilot mentoring match program for experienced international psychologists and students, early career psychologists and international affiliates and is looking for volunteers for mentors and mentees. Their web page now includes the Mentoring Guidelines, Letter from the Mentoring Coordinator, Ani Kalayijian, and the Application Form for mentors and mentees, as well as a listing of international research and teaching opportunities. Click here to access this webpage. Comments or suggestions for this page should be sent to the chair, Irene Hanson Frieze, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Mentoring Committee is also working to link researchers in different countries so that people outside of the U.S. can find sponsors if they want to come to the U.S. or need help in preparing papers for publication in U.S. journals. We would also like to have volunteers to host U.S. scholars who want to work in other countries.
