KU-WiSTEMM Mentor Application (Graduate Students)

The KU Women in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine) Mentoring Program (KU-WiSTEMM) is an interdisciplinary program open to 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 professional development skills that will help women excel in their STEMM careers at the University of Kansas. WiSTEMM was started in the spring of 2018 as is the result of a partnership with Jayhawks Breaking Barriers.


Each undergraduate mentee will be matched with a graduate student mentor for the 2019-2020 academic year. The mentor and mentee pairs will be expected to meet for a minimum of 2 hours per month, as well as attend several group events including professional development and personal wellness workshops, panels, and social events.

Preparation for the matching event: To prepare for the matching event we plan to provide a slideshow to you prior to the matching event. The slideshow will contain information about the mentors and mentees who will be involved and hopefully help with the matching process. In order to do this, we will include some of the things you share, along with a photo on your slide (The photo you provide will only be used for the slideshow. The photos will not be saved for any other use.). The slide about you will have your name, pronouns, photo, major, and fun fact and additional information if you agree. PLEASE EMAIL YOUR PHOTO to wistemm@ku.edu.


We encourage you to apply to be a part of this rewarding program! Fill out this application to participate in WiSTEMM as a mentor during the 2019-2020 academic year. Please contact wistemm@ku.edu with any questions.
