All rights reserved.The purpose of this study was to capture the peer research mentoring experience of pre-service school counselors who were involved in a Peer Research Mentoring Program deployed at an undergraduate level Research Methods course. We used a qualitative case study and employed criterion sampling to recruit 10 pre-service school counselors who had completed the Research Methods course at an international university in Northern Cyprus as research mentors. We paired up the research mentors with pre-service school counselors who were enrolled in the course. Upon completion of a training module, the peer research mentors guided their peers in developing an effective research proposal. We collected data through qualitative surveys from 10 peer research mentors and 9 mentees. Data were subjected to content analysis. The results indicated that the peer research mentoring process enabled the research mentors to gain first-hand research mentoring experience; updated their knowledge and skills regarding conducting research; increased their research self-efficacy and research interests, and improved their communication skills.
