When is the application due?

Applications are due by October 1, 2021.


When will I know if I was accepted/matched?  

If you are a mentor, you will be contacted by October 8, 2021, with the name, contact information, résumé and personal letter of interest of your student. If you are a student, you will know if you were matched by October 8, 2021, and you will receive the name and general information of your mentor.

Once the pair information has been sent, the next step of communication is between the mentor and student.

If I participated in the program last year, may I apply again this year?
