Science 50:50 Mentor Program

 

What is the Science 50:50 Mentor Program?

The Mentor Program is an avenue for high school girls to ask career related questions and for career advice from some of our Science 50:50 partners.

  • Are you a high school girl in Years 9 to 12?
  • Do you have a question about science and technology career paths?
  • Do you want to find out what working in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) related job would be like?

PLEASE NOTE: The Mentor Program is intended for students to ask about career paths and about STEM jobs. If you have a question that is about specific degree requirements and degree structure, our friendly Future Students Team can be emailed on studyscience@unsw.edu.au.

 

How does it work?

You can seek the advice of our mentors by emailing science.industry@unsw.edu.au and we will direct your question to a suitable mentor!

When you send your email make sure to use "Science 50:50 Mentor enquiry" in the subject line and to include the following information in your email;

  1. Full name

  3. The year you are in at school
