Current Mentor Needs

Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing accepts new men­tors through­out the year, as men­tors in all STEMM areas are always in demand in order to meet the chang­ing needs of mentees.

Right now, we are seek­ing addi­tion­al STEMM expert men­tors (PhD or equiv­a­lent R&D expe­ri­ence) to meet the diverse and spe­cif­ic STEMM needs of some of the new mentees. The response of STEMM experts to date has been out­stand­ing, but we are still look­ing for more experts to fit the spe­cial­ized needs of our high­ly moti­vat­ed mentees. Please con­sid­er invest­ing in the future of STEMM by men­tor­ing a tal­ent­ed, pas­sion­ate youth in your STEMM area of expertise! 
The below list reflects STEMM areas in which we cur­rent­ly need extra men­tors due to the high demand by mentees in these areas. As we are always in need of men­tors in all STEMM areas, we encour­age you to reg­is­ter even if you do not see your spe­cif­ic STEMM field list­ed below. 

List cur­rent as of 5 March 2024.
