YMMSS Mentorship Pairing Form
The Yale Mentorship for Minority Students in STEM (YMMSS) is a new program that wants to create mentorships for underrepresented groups in STEM at Yale. We want to partner students with similar STEM interests and which belong to the same minority group(s). Mentor pairings would be constructed so that first-years and sophomores are paired with juniors and seniors, and juniors and seniors with graduate students. Mentorship can take place in a 1-1 setting or in a group.
Please fill out this quick survey with your information and preferences so that we can best match you with a mentor or mentee. We cannot guarantee that we'll be able to partner you with someone that shares your same field or identity, but we will try our best to match you how you'd like to be matched.
The first 6 questions are required, as well as three questions at the end. Everything else is optional, but the more information you give us the better we can match you! Thank you!
