The Leopoldina fellowship program also includes a mentoring program. Participation is voluntary for all scholarship holders.
The Mentoring consists of the Leopoldina recommending an Academy member (mentor) from the appropriate section to the scholarship holders (mentees) on request and arranging for them to be available for mentoring. This is possible for both the postdoctoral students abroad and the returnees. It serves to promote the individual's professional development while maintaining academic independence.
The award committee will confirm the proposed mentor-mentee relationship. Mentors can provide direct and indirect assistance through individual advice and referrals to contact persons at institutes and in the industry. The Leopoldina sponsorship program can contribute to the implementation of the program with limited travel expenses for the mentee and the mentor.
