The Mormon History Association will be hosting a mentorship event this year at our annual June conference and is seeking applications from students and early career scholars to participate. Successful applicants will be paired with an advanced scholar in Mormon history and discuss their research interests and career trajectory. We welcome applications not only from those seeking traditional academic appointments but those interested in digital humanities, publishing, and public history. This is an amazing opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation and to receive specific advice about your unique place in the field of Mormon history.

The goals of the event are:

  • to introduce current research and receive feedback
  • to support students with information and advice on their career goals
  • to foster talent early career scholars in the field of Mormon history
  • to help inform people about career options

  • key research questions and methodology of the applicant’s research
  • scholarship that informs the applicant’s research
  • professional goals and trajectory
  • optional: identify up to five people in the field of Mormon history who the applicant feels would be helpful mentors and briefly state why *hint* check the MHA program to see who will be attending the conference
