Professionals

Mentor judges are needed in all STEM disciplines! For many students getting direct mentorship can make all the difference in validating and motivating them to persist in their STEM journey. By serving as a mentor judge, these volunteers provide constructive feedback and motivation to student research presenters, including many first-time presenters and first-generation college students.

Note: Must be registered for the conference to serve as a mentor judge!

Exhibitors & Partners

Virtual Expo Booths are available in our Graduate School & Career Expo! Institutions, companies, and agencies are invited to reserve a space and connect with thousands of STEM students.
