Mentoring and Career Development-2014 Galvan and Goldenberg

The Scholars Mentoring Grant was designed to support the professional development of William T. Grant Scholars and help researchers of color reach higher levels on the career ladder.

Adriana Galván’s dual goals for her grant are: 1) to help students focus on their weaknesses as well as their strengths; and 2) to become more attentive to how race and ethnicity impact students’ perceptions of academia and their career trajectories. Her mentee, Diane Goldenberg, is a third year Latina doctoral student in the Department of Psychology. Galván will mentor Goldenberg in examining how social environments influence brain development among low-income and minority youth.
