Prof. Dev: REEES Doctoral Student Peer Mentoring Program

The Slavic Reference Service will begin the REEES Doctoral Student Peer Mentoring Program in early February of this year. Current doctoral students, recent PhD graduates, and Master’s degree students intending to enter PhD programs may sign up for this program. Students will be matched with peer mentors and will have the opportunity to participate in events like our REEES Dissertation workshop during this Spring semester. We would be grateful if you could share this information with any students who may be interested. Students should fill out the form by the end of this month to participate in the initial kick-off in early February.

Funding Resource for UTexas Students (Office of Distinguished and Postgraduate Scholarships)

The ODPS supports UT students and alumni interested in applying for prestigious national and international scholarships and fellowships. Some of these opportunties allow applicants to apply directly for the fellowship or scholarship. However, other scholarships and fellowships require an applicant to be endorsed (or nominated) by their academic institution such as the Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships. In these instances, applicants will go through the UT endorsement process.

UT students and alumni should identify scholarships that align with their academic and professional interests. Review the mission, eligibility requirements, and selection criteria of each opportunity. Applicants are strongly encouraged to share their intent and request assistance with their applications from the ODPS staff.
