We are looking for volunteer refugee/displaced professional scientists or graduate students enrolled as science majors to serve as mentors and role models for Science United Festival’s participants.

Mentors are of fundamental importance for Science United Festival’s impact on participant students. By sharing their story, their cultural background, their dreams and positive words, the mentors will encourage participating students from around the world to be optimistic, resilient, and continue their academic efforts in science.

The mentor’s role consists of the following obligations:

  1. Introduce themselves, their story of displacement, and their science journey in a short video-story in English and their native language. Guiding questions are available on the application form. Mentor video-stories will be uploaded on YouTube and embedded on a dedicated Mentors page at the Science United Festival’s website (with mentor’s written consent). The video-stories will be shared on the Science United Project and Blossom Hill Foundation social media channels (with mentor’s written consent) to facilitate communications and promote the Project.
  2. Attend a mentor information meeting.
  3. Provide encouraging feedback via written comments or video to student projects during the Festival period (May 9-22, 2022).
  4. Take part in an online honorary ceremony at the end of May 2022.

The expected involvement is estimated at approximately 15 hours. Please, take the time to read carefully our Child Protection Policy and the participation process as described in detail at the Terms and Conditions page.

Please apply at the form below by January 30, 2022.
