IRE is now accepting applications for our popular conference mentoring program. If you plan to attend the IRE 2020 virtual conference and you’re looking for a mentor — or you’d like to volunteer to be a mentor — please click here to sign up.

This year’s program, being online, will look a little different. But IRE will still match mentors with mentees and arrange for them to meet at a special event during the conference. Please review the program guidelines and the IRE Principles before applying.

Thank you to the Scripps Howard Foundation and the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University for sponsoring this program.

Space is limited and not everyone who applies is guaranteed a spot. IRE will accept applications until midnight CT on Friday, Aug. 28. If the program is full, your application will be added to a waitlist.

⚠️ You must register for the conference by midnight CT on Friday, Sept. 4, to participate in the mentorship program.

Please contact IRE training director Cody Winchester with any questions:
