Early Scholars Professional Development Workshop

 Wednesday, November 18, 2015 | 3:30PM



At the 2015 Annual Conference in Chicago, IL, ARNOVA will provide a unique opportunity for early scholars (assistant professors as well as doctoral and master’s students) to participate in an Early Scholars Professional Development Workshop. The Workshop will engage participants who are interested in learning more about career opportunities and challenges and who are seeking advice on ongoing research. The Workshop also promises mentoring and networking opportunities.

Who should participate?

Early Scholars (assistant professors in their 1-3 year), and PhD and Master’s students—especially those who are not participating in similar opportunities, during ARNOVA conferences (pre-conference activities) or in their home institutions.

How do I participate?

Complete the Early Scholars Professional Development Workshop section as part of the 2015 ARNOVA conference online registration. If you are interested in the Research Roundtables, please refer to the special announcement and submit a separate application.

When will the workshop take place?

The Workshop activities kick off at 3:30PM on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, in Chicago the day prior to the start of the ARNOVA’s 2015 Conference and will be concluded by 3:30PM on Saturday, November 21, 2015. ARNOVA will be hosting a reception for pre-conference participants on Wednesday, November 18, 2015.

What will the workshop cover?

The Workshop will introduce the participants to the state of nonprofit research and career and highlights the ethical challenges in research and teaching. It is also designed to provide hands-on learning and advice across a range of topics tailored to specific groups.
