Mentee Application 2018-2019

Dear prospective mentee,

Please read ALL details before filling out the application. Failure to read instructions may result in inability to match you to the right circle. Filling out this application indicates your eagerness to participate in the program and your commitment to the expectations below: 

1. You should anticipate a commitment of 2-3 hours/month to meet with your mentoring circle throughout the entire academic year (September-May). Please note that most circles meet in the weekdays after work but it is up to the discretion of the circle.

2.  All mentees are required to attend the Mentoring Circle Kick-off Meeting in September 2018 and the End-of-Year Celebration Event in May 2019.

3. There will be a one time charge of $25 to defray costs of required events . THE FEE IS DUE PRIOR TO THE KICK-OFF EVENT. Failture to pay the fee by the specified deadline your spot will be forfeited to the next person on the wait list. Scholarships are available, please contact us if interested.

4. You MUST be an National AWIS member and Massachusette Chapter member. 

**Filling out an application does not guarantee you a spot. You will be matched only if we have an appropriate circle and a mentor for you. Please note that we receive more applications than we have available spots, therefore we encourage you to register only if you are fully committed to a year of mentoring meetings. In the past, we had to turn people away only to have some drop out of the program mid-year.

For additional information please see the MASS AWIS website: http://massawis.org/mentoring-circles/

Thank you for your interest and we hope to talk to you soon!
