FAQ - Mentors
1. I’m busy with activities in college; will NSF Mentorship take up a lot of time?
The commitment is one monthly phone call or Skype session with the mentee, scheduled at a mutually convenient time. Follow-ups can be handled via e-mail. Because the program requires a few hours a month around the mentor’s schedule, we think this is a feasible way to make a positive difference.
2. How many students should I mentor?
Because the relationships are one-on-one, we recommend that mentors take no more than 4 mentees to ensure individual attention. However, there is no minimum number and it depends on schedules and level of interest. It is important that the mentor genuinely seeks to enhance each student’s high school experience.
3. Is this limited to NSF alumni? I want to mentor, but I have a different charity in mind. What should I do?
Any talented college or Graduate student can apply to become a mentor. Below, let us know if you wish to send 50% of funds you raised to a different charity of your choice.
