About the programme

Some of the members of the Trevor Platt Science Foundation have agreed to provide online mentorship to scientists. The programme is aimed primarily at early career scientists and post graduate students in marine and aquatic sciences. Exceptions may be made for more senior scientists, for example, if they are trying to break into a new field or a new working environment.


This is a mentorship programme and not a training course. It means that each selected mentee will be paired with a mentor. The mentor and mentee would agree on a pattern of online contacts. On agreed times, the mentor and mentee would go online for a mutually agreed duration, during which the mentee can request guidance and direction from the mentor regarding professional and scientific problems that they face. The overall duration of the programme would be six months.


The 2023 TPSF Mentorship Programme will be announced soon.
