Mentorship Program

Main content start

Our next SERIO-Wide Mentorship Meeting will be in Spring Quarter

Date: April 16, 2024 from 4 - 5 pm
Food: Boba
Location: Hartley conference room

What is the purpose of this Mentorship Program?

Becoming a SERIO mentor is a low-commitment way to get involved in DEI. Underrepresented minority students often face systematic limitations that can result in inadequate preparation for graduate school. You can help reduce these limitations by sharing your graduate school experience (like how you found your advisor or why you decided to pursue graduate school) so students can learn and prepare. 

Am I the right person for this?

We are looking for any graduate student (Master’s or PhD) at Stanford involved in STEM.

What is the commitment?

Mentors and mentees are expected to meet twice a year (either in person or on Zoom) at minimum. Mentors should lead coordination of meetings; you can coordinate them anytime to fit your schedule. We will reimburse meeting snacks up to $8 per person per meeting.   

We also host quarterly mentorship events (with snack like boba or donuts) that bring all SERIO mentors and mentees together. 

How do I find a mentee?

You do not have to do anything - we will match you with an undergraduate!
