Summary or Abstract : The purpose of this study was to identify mentor functions; examine the extent of mentor influence in career development; and, examine the relationship among extent of mentor influence and selected measures of career development. Data consisted of responses ( n =40) to a mailed, self-report questionnaire. The majority of respondents' mentors were White women who provided both career-related and psychosocial mentor functions. Over one-third of the respondents indicated that their mentor had a high level of influence in their career development. There was a significant relationship among the level of mentor influence in respondents' career development and the number of competitive grants received [ 2 2=6.174, ?<.05, Cramer's V=.393] as well as number of years to move to the rank of associate professor [ 2 2=5.115, ?<.05, Cramer's V=.519]; those with a high level of mentor influence were more likely to have received 4 or more competitive grants and reached the position of associate professor faster than those with a low level of mentor influence or no mentor. No relationship was observed among level of mentor influence and satisfaction with current position or with career progress. This study does not fully support the conclusion of previous studies (Long, 1978; Peluchette & Jeanquart, 2000; Queralt, 1981) that individuals without mentors are at a disadvantage; however, the presence of a high level of mentor influence did show a relationship among two variables, and thus should not be disregarded..
