MentorNet: The E-Mentoring Network for Women in Science and Engineering

MentorNet matches undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, math, and related sciences with engineers and scientists working in industry and national labs for e-mail based mentoring relationships. Through relationships with their mentors, students become acquainted with career opportunities in technical and industrial careers, gain access to professional networks and receive personal and professional guidance, support, and encouragement.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about science and engineering careers beyond academic research and medicine. Mentoring has been identified as an effective way to support women students and to increase their participation in the technical and scientific workforce, where less than 30% of the scientists and less than 10% of the engineers are women.

Students may apply via the MentorNet web site from August 15, 2002 through October 31, 2002. For more information, please visit the MentorNet web site at: www.mentornet.net
