Scholars Mentorship Grant – Odgers and Wang

Drs. Candice Odgers and Lin (Victor) Wang proposed a plan for mentoring, professional development and research that builds on Odgers’ William T. Grant Scholars Award. Odgers and Wang integrated their shared research and professional goals to develop an innovative approach to both mentorship and research. The proposed activities were intended to strengthen Odgers’ mentoring skills and improve her ability to play a more active role in promoting the careers of underrepresented young scholars. At the same time, the training plan was intended to provide Wang with the methodological tools, research skills and professional development opportunities required to make a successful transition into an assistant professor position at a research-based university.
