FAQs  

Who do I contact about being a mentee or mentor?

  • CENTRIC mentorship committee co-chairs Carol Pullen or Patrik Johansson

or

If I receive funding from CENTRIC, do I have to be in the Mentorship program?

  • If you receive funding from CENTRIC and do not have a mentor, it is strongly encouraged that you apply for the Mentorship program. However those that already have a mentor may want to be in our program in order to formalize your mentoring relationship by setting SMART goals, having a signed agreement about the terms of your mentoring relationship etc.

How long does a mentoring agreement last?

  • One year, then it is up for review. A mentee can then renew a mentoring agreement or request a new mentor.
