AFAA Mentorship Program

The AFAA Mentorship Program is an initiative designed to help set up mentoring relationships between experienced Fulbright alum and early-career Fulbright alum. This document outlines the guidelines, expectations and responsibilities of the program and is shared with potential mentors and mentees during the agreement stage.

At AFAA, the duration of a mentoring relationship is 12 months from the date that both the mentor and mentee sign the mentorship agreement. During this time, the mentor and mentee exprience a number of benefits, which include, but are not limited to:

      • sharing industry expertise and knowledge
      • personal development
      • learning about each other's experience and insights
      • sharing skills, advice and encoouragement
      • planning career progression and setting goals
      • passing valuable lessons between each other

How to get involved?

Program Guidelines

As each mentoring relationship is considered unique, there are no prescriptive guidelines. However, the AFAA Mentorship Team will provide prospective mentorship pairings with our Official Mentorship Program Guidelines and Agreement during the pairing process to help guide pairings. 

Advice provided and discussions held between the mentor and mentee must be kept confidential and not disclosed to any third party, unless mutually agreed by the mentor and mentee. Any advice, comments, suggestions, opinions or information (in either individual or combined occurrence) imparted (verbally, in written or electronic correspondence, or by a combination of these) during and in the framework of the academic mentoring network and its entailing programs, are so done with the best intentions and according to the best knowledge of the mentor or mentors involved. Whilst every care is taken to deliver accurate and complete advice, comments, suggestions, opinions or information (in either individual or combined occurrence), no liability whatsoever attaches to the mentor or mentors nor to the AFAA Committee in any way as a result of giving that advice.

Connect. Support. Share. Inspire.
