Mentee Eligibility Recruitment Criteria Expanded

MSU-NRTC is continuing active, nationwide recruitment of legally blind college students and professionals for "An Employment Mentoring Intervention," one of six research projects under our current NIDRR NRTC on Employment Outcomes for Individuals who are Blind or Visually Impaired. Mentees must be undergraduate or graduate students under the age of 35 who are legally blind. They must expect to seek employment after graduation, and have basic computer literacy and ability to access online materials. New guidelines expand eligibility to include students who will graduate between January 2013 and December 2014. Mentors must be legally blind, currently employed or retired from a professional career, and must have basic computer literacy and ability to access online materials. To volunteer for participation in this project, please complete an online eligibility survey for students at http://tiny.cc/mentor-students or for professionals at http://tiny.cc/mentor-professionals.
