About Scholars Academy Mentors
Are you a business professional looking for an opportunity to invest in college students? Do you want to share your expertise and business insight with some of our best and brightest? Then consider applying to be a Scholars Academy Mentor.
As a mentor, you will have the opportunity to engage with one or two high-achieving members of UNO’s College of Business Administration Scholars Academy throughout the academic year. The agenda is simple: create a space for business professionals to share their wisdom with students, and give students an opportunity to ask questions of business professionals.
We ask mentors to commit to one academic year, which includes a minimum of six meetings between September and April. The meetings may be over lunch or coffee, at your office, in Mammel Hall, Zoom, or wherever you think would be a conducive place for quality discussion. The meetings may be at times convenient for you and your mentee(s).
The Scholars are required to submit reflections, three per semester, about their meetings with their mentors, so consistency from the mentors is extremely imperative for the success of this program.COMPANY VISITS
As a mentor, you also have the option to host a company visit for the Scholars. This will typically be a group of about 10 to 20 Scholars. As high-achieving students, the Scholars are proactively looking for internship opportunities and carefully considering their career choices. By being a mentor and hosting a company visit, you are gaining access to some of our most sought-after students.
