Mentor Immersion: A Virtual Research Experience

PTY’s Mentor Immersion program is a unique experience offering in-depth exposure in an academic field and the potential for independent research or a culminating product to be created with expert feedback. Approximately 8 students are paired with a mentor and an additional teaching assistant/peer guide. Through this experience students are able to deepen their understanding in a field of study while making new friends with high ability peers and conducting research or creating a project similar to practicing professionals. Each mentorship meets synchronously for two hours a week for the length of the program. Typically, mentorship meeting times are in the evenings or weekends. Students complete asynchronous work to further their knowledge. The times of the meetings vary by mentorship and will be posted with the mentorship description.

The Fall 2021 Cohort of Mentor Immersion program runs August 16, 2021 to January 30, 2022.

Applications for Mentor Immersion sessions are currently being accepted. Visit the Mentor Immersion Courses page for additional information about the application process.
