Do you have a burning research question you’d like to explore, but you’re not sure where to start? Or have you conducted research independently, but you’re in need of a Mentor to support you for the purpose of this Competition? The Student and Family Toolkit includes sample language that you could use to achieve these goals and set you up for success. Then see the Mentor Match information below for next steps.
