Support the Neag School of Education's Mentor Connection Fund today!
UConn Mentor Connection is a residential enrichment program held during the summer on the Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut, serving students entering the last two years of high school. The program is designed to provide rising juniors and seniors from diverse backgrounds with opportunities to participate in high-level creative projects and research investigations under the supervision of university mentors. Accomplished university professors and/or advanced graduate students host participants in their labs and studios and work with them on projects in shared areas of interest. Students and mentors become a community of scholars working together on important issues on the cutting edge of various fields of study. The mentorship experience allows high school students to take on the role of practicing professionals, experience real-world research and/or creative projects, enhance their awareness of their talent areas and career opportunities, and interact with students who share common areas of interest. College credit is an option at most mentorship sites.
Gifts to the Mentor Connection fund provides general support for the program.
