WISMP 2018-2019 Student Mentee Application
Get a mentor! Network more! We're told these things, but no one explains how we should go about doing them and why they are important. The Women in STEM Mentorship Program was established in 2013. Since then, we've been matching hundreds of women STEM students at top universities with practicing women engineers and scientists from industry. Through informal mentorship sessions throughout the year, students get practical help and advantage in writing resumes and interviewing for internships and jobs, but they also get access to an established network that can help you to discover new careers and develop key interpersonal skills.

To be a mentee, the time commitment is:
1 *mandatory* kick off event held on your school campus, which includes meeting your mentor
1 hour / month (Oct-May) for mentorship meetings with your mentor -- some in person and some via video call

This year, if we have enough interest, we will be piloting a remote mentoring program. You still need to be a woman student studying STEM to apply, but may be at any college or university.

Applying below is a commitment to the entire academic year of mentoring, as mentors are limited. We'll announce kick-off dates approximately three weeks before each event (they will be approximately 4 weeks after school starts, around 6:30PM), and ask for your confirmation that you can attend before we match mentors and mentees.  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.

Please confirm your understanding that the kick-off dinner is mandatory *
UC Berkeley's kickoff dinner is October 12, 7PM. For all others, kick-off dinners are typically held on a September or October weeknight (usually TWTh) starting around 6:30PM or 7PM on campus. We will confirm the date with you several weeks before, and will notify if you are matched several days before. (Remote mentees will be asked to attend a web-session in place of a kick off dinner, potentially on a weekend to address timezones).
