AWM Mentor Network
Request a Mentor

Here's the way the AWM Mentor Network works.

We match mentors with girls/women who are interested in mathematics and/or are pursuing careers in mathematics. The idea of the network is that even if the mentors don't know all of the answers, it's likely that they can point their advisees in the right direction or connect them with the right person.

To get started, please answer the few simple questions below. We will match you up with a mathematician who has volunteered as a mentor, according to the general area of interest you indicate.

If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions about the AWM mentor network, don't hesitate to contact the Mentor Network Committee ( Any input will be appreciated!
