What is it?

oSTEM's Mentorship Progam will launch a pilot in June 2019 that will through December 2019. At the beginning of the program, mentees and mentors will work together to set personal goals that will be tracked on a monthly basis.

We hope to optimize matches for our mentees based on their personal priorities (geographical proximity, shared identity, academic / field alignment, professional / career alignment, or LGBTQ advocacy interests). We ask our matches to meet at least once per month and we will require a small deliverable from our mentees at the end of the pilot that aligns with the goals they set at the beginning of the pilot.  


How do I join?

We are currently collecting feedback on what you, our oSTEM Community, would like to see from this program. You can fill out this program goals survey and make sure your voice is heard. This is an opportunity to shape this program to have it best serve you. 

Program Goals Survey


If you are interested in submitting an application for this program, we have applications for both mentors and mentees!

  • We especially encourage applications from traditionally under-served communities.
  • We also urge those who are in their mid to late careers to submit a mentor application to mentor PhD candidates and Postdocs.
