Demographics of Mentors

Potential applicants might like to know: will any of the mentors look like me? Our workplaces have become more diverse over the years, and so has the mentor pool:

Another fun number: we have had two or three alumni of this program as mentors in all but one of the years since 2009!

Demographics of Participants

Demographics of participants follow. Here is our male-female breakdown over the years. The total number of students has varied from 10 to 12.

Since 2011, we have had greater success with recruiting competitive applications from groups that are underrepresented in the sciences. Our applicant pool, plus the fact that there are many summer internship opportunities, tends to lead us to a percentage at around 1/3 of the resulting group once the selection/acceptance process is complete. In 2015 we saw all our offers accepted, woot! In most years we have a few decline for another program they have already accepted, or when we are not their first choice and that comes through for them.

Another way of looking at the above is to look at total numbers of majority vs. minority participants:
