At the NCRE 2017 conference, we will involve students in an intentional way, explicitly connecting them with NCRE members who can provide time-limited mentorship on conducting research with Native children and adolescents and career development. NCRE Student Scholars will receive travel support to attend the conference, be paired with a senior NCRE faculty member for targeted mentorship, be actively involved in conference presentations and activities, and make connections with the broader NCRE membership. Up to four NCRE Student Scholars will be accepted. A full description of the NCRE Student Scholar program can be found on the NCRE Conference 2017 | Student Scholars Application .
The success of NCRE Student Scholars program will depend on the availability of NCRE members to serve as mentors. NCRE Student Scholar Mentors are expected to attend the NCRE 2017 conference which will be held September 28-29, 2017 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Denver, Colorado, and engage in the following activities:
- Attend the preconference reception the evening of Wednesday September 27, 2017
- Attend the NCRE poster symposium to review student posters and participate in symposium discussion
- Meet students for one-on-one discussion of research interests and career goals
- Introduce students to other NCRE members, particularly those with similar interests
Following the NCRE 2017 Conference, mentors are expected to follow up with students periodically to provide guidance on research and career development.
Limited travel support will be provided for NCRE Student Scholar Mentors to attend the NCRE 2017 conference.
