The program schedule includes a session on mentorship that will provide Ambassadors valuable information about the importance of mentorship, and how to get the most out of their mentoring relationship. This session will also help Ambassadors identify personal mentorship goals.
Each SCIE Ambassador will be assigned a faculty mentor from their school. Mentors are selected not necessarily based on their identity as an under-represented minority but based on their passion for supporting students.
SCIE Ambassadors are required to meet with their mentors at least once per semester. They are expected to complete a Mentorship Form to facilitate documentation of and reflection on these meetings. Additionally, prior to the closing ceremony, Ambassadors must write a one-page reflection paper about their mentorship experience.
SCIE Ambassador mentors will be invited to the closing ceremony, providing additional opportunities for informal mentorship for the current cohort.
