I am not based in the Ile-de-France region. Can I still apply to be a mentee or mentor?
All of our in-person events from October 2023 to April 2024 will be taking place in Paris. While you are welcome to apply if you live outside of the Ile-de-France region, we still expect you to attend all of the in-person events. You can expect at least one event per month, and sometimes two.
I am an exchange student in France. Can I still apply to be a mentee?
International or exchange students are welcome and encouraged to apply. The program can give you the added bonus of exposing you to the French working environment and help you build your professional network for post-graduation.
Do I have to speak English in order to participate?
Basic proficiency recommended
While many of our mentors are bilingual, our panel discussions will take place in English. We recommend you have basic proficiency in English so that you can make the most of your experience. For your mentorship sessions, you are free to determine with your mentor whether you prefer to communicate in English or French.
When do mentee applications close?
Applications open for next year
2023-2024 applications have closed. You can apply to be considered for the 2024-2025 cohort which will begin in Fall 2024.
