Mentor Tips and Training

Tips for guiding the next generation of scientists and engineers

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education internship, fellowship and research programs depend on mentors and guidance from the host lab or facility. A strong scientific mentoring program will foster an environment where young scientists and engineers succeed, in addition to strengthening the research programs students serve. Whether you’re a first-time mentor or a seasoned advisor, ORISE has resources that can help provide new insights to your mentoring process.

If you are asking yourself, “how will I know if my project will make for a good mentoring experience,” or “what is involved with hosting a participant,” we will help provide answers.
