STEM Fellowship and Prospective Medical Professionals (PuMP) have partnered to create PowerUp, a free mentorship program for those interested in pursuing  life and health sciences in university. This program will connect interested high school students with experienced and passionate university mentors. Mentors will conduct one-time virtual meetings (“coffee chats”) with mentees to share university application advice. 

There are several ways to get involved (scroll to the bottom of the page to apply):

  • If you would like to be involved with the organization of the PowerUp program, please apply to be an executive. There are positions available on our Pairings Team, Outreach Team, and Marketing Team. All position are open to both high school and university students. Apply by June 13th 2021 11:59pm EST!
  • If you are a university student currently studying in a life or health sciences program, apply to be a mentor!
  • If you are in high school and would benefit from speaking with a current university student, apply to be a PowerUp mentee when the program launches in mid-July!
