Science Funding Speed Mentoring

Show Me the Money!

The SIOP Scientific Affairs Committee is delighted to welcome interested SIOP members to participate as protégés and interact with accomplished mentors at the fifth annual “Science Funding Speed Mentoring” special event on Friday, April 20, 2018, 5:30-7:00PM in Superior B at the Sheraton Grand Chicago

This event complements several other conference events focused on improving science advocacy by providing SIOP members with information and resources to more effectively pursue scientific funding opportunities. To participate you must be a SIOP member of any type, including Student Affiliates. 

About Speed Mentoring

  • Protégés that sign up for this special event will get the opportunity to engage in two (2) consecutive 30-minute small group discussions guided by leading experts in the field and representatives from funding agencies.
