The Women in STEM Mentorship Program was established in 2013. Since then, we've been matching women STEM students at top universities with practicing women engineers and scientists from industry. The program originated in the SF Bay Area, and has supported hundreds of students since its founding.
While the program is still concentrated in the SF Bay Area, we find that most of the mentoring in the program takes place via video calls anyway -- so if you are outside of the Bay Area, please do still apply. If you are inside the Bay Area, please indicate if you'd like to be matched with a local student.
To be a mentor, the time commitment is:1 hour / month (Oct-May) for mentorship meetings for each mentee. Some can be via video, but we recommend that if you live reasonably close to your mentee, that you travel to visit your student at least once or twice during the academic year.
Matching will take place in September through October of 2019, based on when students go back to school. We do our best to match students with mentors of similar fields of study, so we cannot guarantee that we'll be able to match you this year. We'll let you know several days before the event if you've been successfully matched.
