Mentorship PROGRAM

Become a Mentor

Fill out this simple form and tell us about yourself, your field and expertise. Whenever a mentee contacts us that matches your knowledge and experience, we will let you know. If you are available, and approve, we will connect you with the mentee. You will communicate with the mentee on a schedule agreed upon by both you and the mentee.

Become a Mentee

Fill out this simple form and tell us about yourself and what you need advice or guidance on. We will match and connect you with a mentor. You will communicate with the mentor, on a schedule agreed upon by both you and the mentor.


For both Mentors and Mentees

What is the format and structure of this mentorship program?

    • Based on the completed form of a mentee we will match him/her with a mentor and will follow up to insure the usefulness of the connection for the mentee.
How often and how many times should the mentor and mentee meet?
    • At least once, and that should happen shortly after we connect the mentor with the mentee. Whether the mentor and the mentee need to meet more than once is up to them.
We are not a good match to each other. What should we do?
    • We will contact both mentor and mentee after the first meeting. If any of them is not happy with the match, we try to assign another mentor to the mentee.
For how long should a mentorship take?
    • It is up to the mentor and mentee. Once the mentee thinks adequate guidance and help have been provided by the mentor, the mentorship term is considered done.
    • At the end of a mentorship term a feedback will be requested from both mentor and mentee in order to improve the program.
I am looking for a research/business partner, not a mentor. Would you be able to help?
  • We will do our best! Please apply as a mentee and explain your request.

For Mentors

How many mentees do I get?
  • It is totally up to you but at least one if there is a match. 
I thought I would have enough time to mentor, but something has happend and I am no longer available. What should I do?
  • We understand. Please let us know, and if you have an existing mentee, we try to assign another mentor to him/her.
Do I need to be a SUTA member to become a mentor?
  • No, to become a mentor, you don't need to be a member. Though, it is still a good idea if you become a member:) Visit this page, if you are not already a member of SUTA.

For Mentees

Can my mentor find me a job? or a supervisor that I can continue my graduate studies with?
  • Mentors try to give you advice and provide you with connections. However, please be mindful that your mentor is likely a busy individual and the actual work must be done by you.
Can I ask for more than one mentor?
  • Yes, if it is for two different types of advice, and we have available mentors. Our priority is to assign at least one mentor to each mentee.
Do I have to pay a fee to enrol in this program?
  • No, this is a free program available to SUTA members. If you are not a SUTA member, we encourage you to become one by visiting the Become A Member page.
