Become a Mentor in the APS National Mentoring Community

In an effort to increase the number of underrepresented minority (URM) undergraduates obtaining physics degrees, APS and the APS Committee on Minorities have launched the National Mentoring Community (NMC), an initiative to provide mentoring to URM physics undergrads. We encourage committed faculty mentors to register for free as NMC mentors and to nominate their URM undergraduate physics mentees to membership in the NMC (as their mentees). For more information and to register as a mentor, visit the National Mentoring Community website.

Save the Date! October 9 - 11, 2015

Registered NMC mentors and mentees are eligible for discounted registration and travel funding to our inaugural NMC Conference (October 9 - 11, 2015), held jointly with the APS Bridge Program Conference (October 10 - 11, 2015) at Florida International University in Miami, FL. For more information and to register for the conference, visit the APS Bridge Program website.
