Now in its 4th year, this mentorship program offered by Working towards Inclusivity in Chemistry Toronto (WICTO) in collaboration with the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) matches graduate student mentors with upper year undergraduate mentees.
Please note that the WICTO Mentorship Program is open to all genders and that chemistry undergraduate students in their 3rd or 4th year of study are encouraged to apply.
This is a chance to develop your leadership and professional skills, gain experience in advising students interested in your field, and hone interpersonal skills vital to succeeding within and outside of graduate school.
