About EnvironMentors

EnvironMentors is a national program with a mission to mentor and motivate high school students who are underrepresented in the sciences as they plan and conduct environmental research and acquire skills that will allow them to build careers and become more active stewards of their communities and the environment. EnvironMentors matches students with environmental and science professionals, faculty and college students in one-to-one mentoring relationships. Working together, students and mentors develop environmental science projects including a research paper and scientific poster. The program concludes with a National Fair, where top students from each chapter compete for college scholarships.
