The Mentoring Initiative of the Network of Rural and Agrarian (NRAS), which began in 2014, is an outreach effort, designed to offer an opportunity for students and teachers in rural and peri-urban colleges, universities and local practitioners to discuss their research ideas and get feedback on their written work from leading scholars associated with the Network. After the positive feedback received from the participants in the first edition of the Mentoring Initiative, the initiative has been organised along with all Annual Conferences of NRAS. The latest Mentoring Initiative is being organized as a Mentoring Workshop at Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT) on Sept 28, 2019. For more information on Mentoring Workshop 2019 visit:
