The goal of Mentor-Connect, supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF)is to develop or strengthen technician education programs in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
College teams selected for Mentor-Connect are expected to attend two, in- person workshops: winter and summer workshops (*Note: either in person or virtually depending on CDC COVID-19 regulations). Faculty travel support is provided for both workshops. Colleges are also expected to work with an assigned mentor from the winter workshop through the October 2021 ATE proposal submission date. Mentors have extensive experience in STEM disciplines, preparing NSF grant proposals, and managing ATE awards. Mentors will be on-hand to provide guidance and feedback throughout the grant development process.
