Mentorship Program

SSA’s graduate student mentorship program pairs graduate students interested in having a faculty mentor outside their home institution whose research and creative interests align with their own. By facilitating personal and professional connections between generations of scholars, artists, and activists, the mentorship program plays an important role in forging inter-institutional connections and supporting research on sex, sexuality, and gender, including intersections with race, diaspora, Indigeneity, and colonialism. In particular, we envision the mentorship program as working to address professional and personal issues that our membership may encounter, such as the difficulties of working across fields and the challenges that academia can present for minority scholars. The mentorship program is open to any graduate student members or graduate students whose home institution has an institutional membership.
