Rowena Morse Mentoring Programme enters the next round

Following its successful launch in 2018, the Thuringia-wide Rowena Morse Mentoring Programme for young female scientists and artists will enter its fourth round in November 2021: female doctoral and postdoctoral students at Thuringia's universities can apply up to and including 15 August.

The Rowena Morse Mentoring Programme (RMMP) of the Thuringian universities is a support programme for young female scientists and artists at the universities in the Free State of Thuringia. It is named after Rowena Morse, who was the first woman to successfully complete her doctorate in Thuringia in 1904. The interdisciplinary programme accompanies female doctoral candidates in the final phase of their doctorate and post-doctoral candidates in the orientation phase on their individual career path. During the programme period of twelve months, specific workshops for further qualification are offered in addition to the placement of mentors. In the context of peer mentoring, the mentees network with (young) scientists from other Thuringian universities and are accompanied in group mentoring sessions by experienced professors from Thuringian universities. The next programme period begins in November 2021.

The programme is financed by the Thuringian Competence Network for Gender Equality (TKG). The basic concept was developed at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena and further developed in the Mentoring Working Group of the Thuringian Competence Network for Gender Equality as a joint concept of the Thuringian universities.
