Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing fos­ters excel­lence and inno­va­tion in sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy, engi­neer­ing, math­e­mat­ics, and med­ical sci­ences world­wide for excep­tion­al­ly tal­ent­ed youth through evi­dence-based, long-term online mentoring.

Take a look to find out what Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing is all about!
Watch this com­pi­la­tion of tes­ti­mo­ni­als, which pre­miered at Expo 2020 in Dubai, to hear first-hand expe­ri­ences from par­tic­i­pat­ing mentees and mentors.
Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing is an online men­tor­ing pro­gram for devel­op­ing tal­ents in sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy, engi­neer­ing, math­e­mat­ics, and med­ical sci­ences (STEMM). The pro­gram will start with the fourth group of mentees in the spring of 2024. The pro­gram’s unprece­dent­ed com­bi­na­tion of offer­ings, all free of charge, include: 
  • One-on-one men­tor­ing by inter­na­tion­al experts
  • Tai­lored learn­ing path­ways for opti­mal indi­vid­ual tal­ent development
  • Inter­na­tion­al net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties with the best minds in STEMM from all over the world
  • Long-term sup­port over sev­er­al years of accru­ing expertise
  • Eval­u­a­tion and enhance­ment of the pro­gram through con­tin­u­ous research


Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing match­es high­ly moti­vat­ed youths with excep­tion­al achieve­ments in STEMM with out­stand­ing STEMM experts. Men­tor­ing is a col­lab­o­ra­tive at-will rela­tion­ship in which one person—a mentor—shares their knowl­edge, skills, and expe­ri­ence with anoth­er person—a mentee—who is typ­i­cal­ly not as knowl­edge­able or expe­ri­enced and ben­e­fits from the mentor’s guid­ance and per­spec­tive. Men­tor­ing is con­sid­ered a high­ly effec­tive tal­ent devel­op­ment mea­sure that can yield espe­cial­ly pos­i­tive results in gift­ed stu­dents. Through this sup­port, mentees can gain knowl­edge in their field of inter­est, learn spe­cif­ic skills, and receive valu­able advice on their career plans and advancement.

There are tal­ents all over the world and the lan­guage of sci­ence does not know bor­ders. Good men­tor­ing is the best way to ask the right questions.

Interested in participating?


The mentees of Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing are the most out­stand­ing tal­ents in a STEMM domain in their respec­tive country.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents will be men­tored, have the abil­i­ty to work on their own projects and research, and col­lab­o­rate with the inter­na­tion­al net­work through the plat­form. Please read the par­tic­i­pa­tion criteria.


Our men­tors are lead­ing experts in their respec­tive STEMM field who have a proven track record of out­stand­ing accom­plish­ments. Prac­tic­ing sci­en­tists, pro­fes­sors, researchers, and devel­op­ers are just some of the exam­ples of excep­tion­al indi­vid­u­als who reg­u­lar­ly vol­un­teer their time to share their knowl­edge, expe­ri­ence, and pas­sion with our out­stand­ing mentees.



Our part­ners are a mix of STEMM and STEMM-relat­ed orga­ni­za­tions, uni­ver­si­ties, schools, min­istries, and com­pa­nies from around the world. These part­ners con­nect us with the major­i­ty of our out­stand­ing young mentees and expert men­tor vol­un­teers. Like our mentees and men­tors, part­ners work with us on a vol­un­tary basis to help pro­mote the com­mon goal of increas­ing shared STEMM exper­tise inter­na­tion­al­ly. Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing part­ners have access to our glob­al part­ner net­work, which gives them the oppor­tu­ni­ty to inter­act with the dis­tin­guished orga­ni­za­tions, STEMM experts, and excep­tion­al­ly tal­ent­ed youths that form our com­mu­ni­ty of STEMM tal­ent development.
