ASM Future Leaders Mentoring Fellowship


What is the ASM Future Leaders Mentoring Fellowship?

The ASM Future Leaders Mentoring Fellowship is designed to support senior undergraduate, postbaccalaureate, master's and doctoral graduate students from underrepresented groups who demonstrate an interest in the microbial sciences and seek mentorship in navigating their career trajectory. Microbiology sectors include but are not limited to academia, industry, government, nonprofit and entrepreneurship. 

Program Details

In the first year, mentees will be matched with a team of mentors and participate in skillset training, structured mentoring, community building and networking activities at ASM Microbe. In the second year, mentees will become peer mentors to the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) undergraduate students in the microbiology discipline and serve as ABRCMS session moderators. In an optional third year, selected mentees will be invited to serve as an ASM mentoring ambassador to incoming cohorts and an ABRCMS judge.
