The Gifted Mentorship Program places high school juniors and seniors who apply and qualify with a mentor in their field of interest.
The Gifted Mentorship Program is for exceptional high school juniors and seniors who are self disciplined and interested in pursuing an independent study under the direction of a professional/expert in a field of great interest to the student. The program is for high-ability, high-achieving students who have completed advanced coursework. The program gives motivated, mature high school students an idea of what it is like to work in a field of their interest by being teamed with a professional who acts as their mentor. Students spend 45-60 hours with their mentor and earn half an elective credit for the mentorship when they successfully complete several assignments, including a final project.
The Gifted Mentorship Program is generously sponsored by a grant from Matson.
