STEMPowerment Mentorship Program

STEM Fellowship teaches students valuable STEM skills in fields including health science, computer science, and engineering. In particular, we provide specialized support for students typically underrepresented in STEM, including students identifying as Indigenous, economically disadvantaged, rural residents, refugees, and new immigrants, but we are open to anyone. The STEMpowerment Mentorship Program connects Canadian university students with high school students to help students explore their life, career, and/or academic goals over an extended period of time.

It is conducted through virtual calls and is entirely free of charge.

STEMNET Mentorship Program

Our new STEMNet mentorship program aims to pair undergraduate students studying STEM with mentors working or studying in STEM fields, including graduate/professional school students, researchers, professors, nurses, doctors, etc. Mentees would be paired with compatible mentors for a one-time meeting where the mentee can ask questions about careers, schooling, application processes, etc. Each mentor-mentee pairing will only meet once (approx. 30-60 minutes) and the program meeting(s) will occur between March-May, at the discretion of the mentor and mentee. 

An application form for undergraduate students interested in joining can be found here.
