The “CROSSING Female Student Mentoring and Networking Program” encourages you to launch a career in science. An experienced researcher supports you as a mentor. Besides discussions and consultation you have the possibility to participate in an international conference on CROSSING-related topics and to get familiar with the scientific community accompanied by your mentor. You will experience top-level science close up and can network with international researchers.
Furthermore, the program offers you the opportunity to meet other female students and scientists doing research in related fields.
Please send your application to the equal opportunity officer of the CRC CROSSING that consists of:
- a letter of motivation with reference to the relevant conference

- an up-to-date performance record of your study programme (Leistungsspiegel)
- a short accompanying letter of your mentor where he or she declares the willingness to accompany you to the relevant conference and to support you within the frame of the mentoring program. Alternatively, we can search for a mentor for you.
