This guide is a companion piece to Pay It Forward: Guidance for Mentoring Junior Scholars, which was published by the Foundation and the Forum for Youth Investment in 2010. Pay It Forward offers a range of suggestions and resources to help mentors build stronger relationships with their mentees by navigating cultural and racial differences, managing conflict, and providing strategic career support. We have created this guide as a complementary toolbox of strategies and activities for both mentors and mentees. Though this guide was written with William T. Grant Scholars and mentors in mind, we believe it will be useful for other early-career researchers and mentors.
