CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership created the Disability Research Mentorship Program for Black Graduate Students in recognition that academic/research job candidates are judged on their history of publications and presentations, yet, systemic racism impacts who gets funding and research opportunities. For this reason, CQL’s research Mentorship Program aims to provide Black students with opportunities to build up their resumes with research publications.
This Mentorship Program provides students with access to data and helps students develop a peer-review journal article using this data. Our hope is that by the end of the Mentorship Program students will have an accepted/in-press journal article (sole or first author) which they can add to their CV. Students will also have an opportunity to present their work if they wish to do so.
