mentoring application 2020

To apply as a mentor, please fill in the application form and attach you CV with it.

Mentor application (alumni)

In the application form, we ask you about your study/professional background, motivation to apply, and your hopes and expectations for mentoring. Your information will be used in the matching of mentoring pairs, so it is of utmost importance that you complete the application carefully. Before filling-in the application form, please read through the frequently asked questions below.

We will process all applications and CVs in absolute confidence, and we will not use the information for any other purpose. However, your contact information and information of your study or professional background will be sent to your mentoring pair.

Match-making process

We will begin processing the applications as soon as the application period closes, so please make sure to apply on time! Reading through the applications and match-making process will continue over the summer. Those accepted into the programme (= a match found) will receive an e-mail with the name and contact information of their mentoring partner in mid-August. We will personally inform also those for whom we may not find a suitable partner. Be sure to check your e-mail.

Mentees are asked to contact their mentors before the mentoring programme starts. If they so desire, the mentoring partners can meet each other before the kick-off event in September. Our goal is to find the most suitable mentoring pairs on the basis of the applicants’ wishes and objectives. The matches will be made primarily to meet the mentees’ wishes, taking also into account the wishes of the alumni who have registered as mentors. If they so desire, the mentoring programme also gives both students and alumni a great chance to have a mentoring partner from another field. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will find a mentor for each applicant or a mentee for every mentor candidate.
