Predoctoral Mentors

Pre-doctoral mentors at the 2018 Field of Dreams conference.

Math Alliance Predoctoral Mentors play four key roles:

Math Alliance Predoctoral Mentors are typically quantitative sciences faculty at colleges and universities who have committed themselves to mentoring and encouraging undergraduate students from backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in the quantitative sciences. Many of these mentors teach at colleges and universities which serve large numbers of underrepresented students. Others, through their work in summer programs and other such activities, have demonstrated an enduring commitment to the goals of the Math Alliance. The number of these mentors have grown to over 1400; they represent more than 420 colleges and universities nationally. Find a Math Alliance Mentor at your school.

There is support available for Math Alliance Mentors to accompany their students to professional meetings, and they are encouraged to attend the annual Field of Dreams Conference. There are also opportunities for them to travel to Math Alliance Graduate Program Groups where they may participate in Math Alliance REUs and, while there, engage in collaboration with resident faculty.
