WiSTEMM Mentor Application (Graduate Students)

Thank you for your interest in WiSTEMM. Due to the overwhelming number of mentor applications we have received, we are closing the mentor applications for this year. We would love your participation in the future. 


Jayhawks Breaking Barriers Mentoring Program is an inter-disciplinary program for all undergraduate and graduate women in STEMM fields. The program will focus on providing resources, guidance, and support in order to enhance the personal, educational, and career skills that will help women in science excel in their STEMM career at the University of Kansas.

Each undergrad student will be matched with a graduate student mentor for the Spring 2018 semester. The mentor and mentee pairs will be expected to meet for a minimum of 10 hours during the semester, and attend several events for the whole group including workshops, team building, and seminars.

Please contact janegross@ku.edu with any questions.
