The mentees of Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing are the most out­stand­ing tal­ents in a STEMM domain in their respec­tive coun­try. Mentees show great inter­est in one or more STEMM fields and have already proven their excel­lence by through track­able achieve­ments (com­pe­ti­tions, awards, etc.). They are pas­sion­ate about their STEMM field of inter­est and have the desire to pur­sue a career in that field. Mentees are dri­ven by their moti­va­tion to learn and become the best in their STEMM area(s). They grab every oppor­tu­ni­ty to emerge at the top in their cho­sen top­ic, includ­ing hap­pi­ly spend­ing their free time study­ing their STEMM sub­ject of choice.

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. They are guid­ed and sup­port­ed by their men­tors to reach their goal to excel in their STEMM field of interest.

Criteria for Mentees

Stu­dents enter Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing around the age of 16 years (in sec­ondary or ter­tiary edu­ca­tion) where they are con­nect­ed with STEMM experts from all over the world. Excep­tion­al­ly tal­ent­ed and excep­tion­al­ly dri­ven, mentees are the very best stu­dents in their STEMM area of choice, with many rank­ing at top of their nation­al per­centile. Stu­dents are typ­i­cal­ly nom­i­nat­ed by our part­ners, which include tal­ent devel­op­ment orga­ni­za­tions, schools, and oth­er types of orga­ni­za­tions. Once nom­i­nat­ed, prospec­tive mentees com­plete our detailed appli­ca­tion process. From this pool, Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing selects the bright­est and most moti­vat­ed appli­cants to par­tic­i­pate as mentees.

Prospective mentees should meet these criteria:
Excellent Achievements in a STEMM Field

Mentees should be about 16 years old and enrolled in sec­ondary or ter­tiary edu­ca­tion at the start of men­tor­ing (i.e., in March of the year in ques­tion). Stu­dents must be devel­op­men­tal­ly mature enough to work on projects with renowned experts.

Mentees need to demon­strate their STEMM excel­lence by pre­sent­ing their STEMM achieve­ments, such as per­form­ing well in inter­na­tion­al com­pe­ti­tions or receiv­ing awards or oth­er ver­i­fi­able forms of recog­ni­tion of their excel­lence in a spe­cif­ic STEMM domain.

Outstanding Motivation in a Specific STEMM Field

Mentees should already pos­sess an excep­tion­al inter­est in a spe­cif­ic STEMM field and prefer­ably a plan of how they intend to devel­op their career in this field. Focused pas­sion, per­se­ver­ance, and proac­tiv­i­ty are cru­cial fac­tors that will help them to become suc­cess­ful experts.

Eng­lish is the only lan­guage used for com­mu­ni­ca­tion between par­tic­i­pants at Glob­al Tal­ent Men­tor­ing. Pro­fi­cien­cy in Eng­lish is there­fore a pre­req­ui­site for participation.
