Good mentorship is a cornerstone of a successful scientific career, but too often, finding a mentor is left to chance.

Two INSTAAR programs (newSTAAR & JSMP) help us get the mentoring we need to have our best experiences here, develop our careers, and balance research with a healthy life. Both programs are designed to cultivate an inclusive and welcoming environment for INSTAAR members, but offer different types of mentoring. A third INSTAAR program (GAAP) is designed for prospective students considering applying for graduate school.
