Our mentorship program consists of a unique trio format (an undergraduate, early career professional / graduate, and experienced mentor) and runs from September 2022 to March 2023. This structure allows the graduate student or early-career professional to gain experience mentoring an undergraduate student under the supervision of an experienced mentor.  A total commitment of minimum 12 hours over the duration of the program is required, consisting of 3 virtual events (about 2 hours each) and a minimum of 6 hours outside of the program’s formal events. A certificate of completion will be issued upon completion.
