AWM Mentor Network 2016 Report

Open to:
Recent PhD's, Graduate students, Undergraduates, High school and grade school students, teachers


    The goal of the new Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Mentor Network is to match mentors, both men and women, with girls and women who are interested in mathematics or are pursuing careers in mathematics. The network is intended to link mentors with a variety of groups: recent PhD's, graduate students, undergraduates, high school and grade school students, and teachers. Matching is based on common interests in careers in academics or industry, math education, balance of career and family, or general mathematical interests.

    • Request a Mentor: Do you need some advice as you pursue your mathematical studies or career? Do you have questions for someone who has experience and expertise as a mathematician? Then request to be matched with a mentor from the AWM Mentor Network!

      You must read these guidelines before requesting a mentor. - Suggested Guidelines for Mentees  

    • Be a Mentor: Volunteer to mentor someone in their pursuit of their mathematical interests or to help the AWM Mentor Network in other ways. As a mentor you don't have to have all of the answers, but you can help to make the connection to someone or someplace that does!

      Suggested Guidelines for Mentors  

    We strongly encourage mentors, mentees, and their institutions to join AWM so that they can stay informed on opportunities and resources available through the AWM.
