The Yale Mentorship for Minority Students in STEM (YMMSS)

The Yale Mentorship for Minority Students in STEM (YMMSS) is a new program that aims to establish mentorships for underrepresented students (racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ students, students with disabilities, etc.) in STEM at Yale. By facilitating mentorship connections, we hope to encourage students from traditionally underrepresented groups to persist in STEM and STEM-related fields. Mentors and mentees will be paired such that first-years and sophomores are matched with junior and senior mentors, and juniors and seniors are paired with graduate student mentors. We hope to match students that share similar identities or fields of interest, based on what the mentors and mentees prefer.

We’ll be matching students based off of their responses to this Google Form, which can be filled out at any time of the year. An initial batch of responses will be collected on the 23rd of April so as to be able to put mentors and mentees in contact before the end of the semester.
