Mentorship Opportunity

Interested students will have the opportunity to become peer mentors from the NSF HSI STEM Grant Program. Peer mentors will be students who have successfully completed their first-semester in the program and, thus, have gained valuable experience navigating the campus environment and understanding the rigors of studying within a STEM discipline. The peer mentors will dedicate and will be paid for approximately 5 hours per week to support their mentees, utilize the structured study lab as a venue to check-in with their mentees, develop connections, and provide resources and support. The peer mentors will also maintain good academic standing and demonstrate the ability to work independently and as a program team member.
