The callout for our mentoring program is done at the beginning of Fall and Spring semesters. If you are involved in our mentoring program and your mentor or mentee graduates, contact us to be assigned a replacement.

Mentoring for Undergraduates

Our mentoring program pairs undergraduate women with graduate students or postdocs in the Astronomy Department (or in some cases, other related departments). This mentoring partnership can be used as a resource for any number of things, such as networking; advice on research, school, or career opportunities; facing discrimination; dealing with impostor syndrome; odd advice; or even just a sympathetic ear. If you choose to participate, you are expected to meet with your mentor/mentee approximately once a month; for example, you may choose to set up a monthly meeting for coffee where the mentor pays.
