MentorNet opens its doors to anyone with a .edu e-mail

November 23, 2011

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.

  • Please help spread the word about this valuable free program, and also consider signing up as a mentor!  We need more planetary scientist mentors on MentorNet!
If you know a woman or minority student who wishes to find a mentor in their chosen field, tell them to go to, and hit JOIN NOW or FIND A MENTOR. As long as they have an .edu address and intend to enter any STEM field, they will be eligible.
