Mentoring

Background

In 2009 the Board on Women and Minorities started a formal mentoring program for the AMS Minority Scholarship winners. One of the Board members, Rebecca Jennings has been instrumental in pairing students with mentors and has continued this effort with the 2010-2011 scholarship winners. Students as part of their scholarship are offered the opportunity to participate in a mentorship with a member of the meteorological community. The purpose of this mentoring relationship is to pair the student with a professional in the field of meteorology, atmospheric sciences, etc., who can provide them with advice, guidance, and assistance as they begin their academic career. Students are paired with mentors that share their general interest and also can guide them in pursuing specific career paths.
