Women in STEM Mentorship Program


The Women in STEM Mentorship Program provides University of Arizona graduate and undergraduate STEM students an opportunity to learn from the valuable experiences and wisdom of STEM professionals, faculty, and staff.  The program takes a holistic approach to the mentorship process valuing not only a student’s STEM interests, but also their entire background and identity as a whole.  This program aims to create diverse, inclusive, and supportive mentoring relationships that foster the retention and success of women in STEM. 

Program Structure: University of Arizona graduate and undergraduate student (mentees) are matched with faculty, staff, and industry associates (mentors) based on their goals, career interests, and background. The program provides a platform for networking and fostering community between women in STEM at the University of Arizona. Mentors and mentees are provided with training in order to help foster the development of meaningful and impactful mentor/mentee relationships.


  • Mentees: Undergraduate or graduate students pursing STEM degrees. The program is intentionally designed for students who identify as women or other gender minorities but open to anyone.
  • Mentors: STEM professionals (academia, government, industry, non-profit) interested in supporting female-identifying STEM students.

Applications for the 2024-2025 schoolyear will open in August.
