Published: 29. jan. 2019

This March, the Young Academy of Slovenia (Društvo Mlada akademija) will present the award “Mentor of the Year 2018” for the best Slovene doctoral mentors.

The right to nominate their mentors is limited to all PhD students that began the doctoral program in 2016 or earlier, and to the PhD holders that defended their theses in 2016 or later.

This year, you can nominate your mentor by filling out the online form (click on this link). The questionnaire is divided into two parts: the first part includes the information about you and your mentor, while the second part contains seven descriptive questions. A preview is available on this link (in PDF format).

You can find more information on the English website.

The deadline is Tuesday, February 12, 2019. The award will be given at the closing ceremony, which is planned for mid-March 2018 and will be organized in collaboration with the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS).
