Visit Webpage

The following call to action by the Mentorship 360 initiative invites project proposals that align with at least one of three themes:

  1. Instigating: Advancing faculty mentorship related to entrepreneurial mindset (EM)
  2. Connecting: Building and sharing professional development opportunities in support of faculty EM
  3. Contributing: Growing the knowledge base of effective faculty mentorship related to EM

Submission Details

Projects spanning a maximum of 2 years in duration and up to $100,000 in budgetary scope will be considered, provided the project meets the expectations outlined in this document. Proposal submissions are due by midnight, local time for the project’s Principal Investigator, by December 14, 2020. We anticipate making up to 20 awards based on the outcomes of the review process.

Project Types & Priorities

Two types of projects will be considered: 1) Research and Development projects, and 2) Scaling and Adaptation projects.

Research and Development projects will generate new knowledge and/or develop innovations to enhance faculty mentorship in engineering. Across topics, we explicitly welcome proposals related to faculty of all ranks and titles: tenure/tenure track faculty, lecturers, professors of practice, etc. Proposals for Research and Development projects on the following topics are particularly welcome:

  • Faculty mentorship and development within specific engineering disciplines or environments
  • Faculty mentorship and development to support and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Faculty mentorship and development to support and promote distance teaching, research, and advising
  • Remote faculty mentorship and development
  • Development of future faculty mentors (e.g., doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars)
  • Networks of mentors (e.g. matching mentors and mentees, connecting to multiple mentors, etc.)

Scaling and Adaptation projects will extend the reach and impact of the Mentorship 360 initiative through any of the following means:

  • Exploration of trends across Mentorship 360 projects
  • Development of tools to connect Mentorship 360 members and/or projects
  • Scaling of an existing or completed Mentorship 360 project
  • Propagation/adaptation of an existing or completed Mentorship 360 project to a new context (e.g., a different institution)
