Location: Date: Hartley conference room

What is the purpose of this Mentorship Program?

As a student from an underrepresented community, you may face systematic limitations that can result in inadequate preparation for graduate school. A graduate student mentor can serve as a resource that can answer your questions about school and life. For example, How is grad school different from undergrad? How does funding/finances work in grad school? How do you get involved in research?

Am I the right person for this?

We are looking for any undergraduate students (at Stanford and at neighboring universities) 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 mentor?

You do not have to do anything - we will match you with a graduate student mentor!
