Welcome to Mentor-Connect!

Mentor-Connect is designed to provide mentors, faculty development and resources to help community colleges benefit from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program. If your college has not received NSF grant funding in the past 10 years, has a need to develop or strengthen STEM technician education program, could benefit from improved leadership skills among STEM faculty, and would like assistance in preparing a competitive grant proposal for NSF’s ATE program, Mentor-Connect is for you! A grant proposal development workshop with financial support and one-on-one mentoring is provided to 20 colleges per year. The next opportunity to apply will be September 2014. Stay tuned! There are additional opportunities throughout the year to get assistance including free technical assistance webinars.
