A guideline for creating a successful mentor relationshipMcNair, scholar, mentor, best practices

Interested in Becoming a McNair Faculty Mentor?

Please have the following ready to submit:

  1. A short description of your research interests

  2. A complete application form

Candidates must agree to work closely with the mentee in both planning and completing the research project. Students will complete an original research project under supervision of the mentor. Completion of the project involves a final research paper to be turned in to the McNair office by the student.

What are my responsibilities as a mentor?

  • Meet with the intern regularly

  • Supervise the intern's research

  • Provide support and direction for the intern, be available to answer questions

  • Assist the intern with tasks that he/she is required to perform such as: conferences, presentation, posters, research papers, etc.

  • Evaluate the intern, this includes assigning a grade

Summer Grading
Grading of the summer research internship is consistent with other courses offered on campus, which is on the 4.0 scale. It is contingent upon successful completion of the of the summer research project/paper. If a student is going to continue the project the following academic year a grade of a "Y" may be assigned.

Typical activities for McNair Mentors

Mentors involve the student in the day to day operations of their research program, directing the intern to appropriate seminars, helping the student make contacts with appropriate graduate schools and programs, introduce the student to pertinent professional organizations, involve the student in reviewing manuscripts and grant proposals, point out readings with which the student should be familiar, help the student structure a curriculum vita for inclusion in a graduate school application, and encourage the student to think critically, ask questions, express opinions,and respect different points of view.

For more information, review the Research Faculty Mentor Handbook.
