MentorNet opens its doors to anyone with a .edu e-mail
The e-mentoring program MentorNet recently made its services available to all STEM students, especially woman and minorities, from any campus.
MentorNet is an award winning e-mentoring program that matches proteges and mentors based on the preferences they list. You may not get a mentor exactly in your field, but usually that gives you a helpful perspective. You commit to an 8-month relationship, and the protege and mentor agree on the desired frequency of communication. Basically they give you the infrastructure needed to find a mentor, and suggestions for how to take advantage of your mentoring relationship. The program is also flexible enough to make your mentoring experience into the one that works best for you.
