SBN One on One Mentorship Program

Jump to:

Application Requirements
Application Form


For the past years, the Student Biotechnology Network has pride itself on providing a platform for students to connect with and learn from a wide variety of industry professionals. Expanding on that mandate, SBN has provided students with opportunities for one-on-one mentorship with an industry mentor specifically chosen to match their skills.

This year we have been receiving numerous applications outside of BC. As a pilot project, we will be accepting these students in the January uptake of students. Depending on the success of this pilot, the SBN may continue to facilitate national/ international mentorship.

The fundamental of professional success is the ability to network and make meaningful connections. The goal of the SBN Mentorship Program at the Student Biotechnology Network is to help prepare and develop the leaders of tomorrow. The mentors who participate will help students increase their connections and build their network, develop leadership skills, and prepare for their career.

The SBN Mentorship Program provides opportunities for students to communicate and develop relationships with experienced professionals, to develop their leadership skills, gain insight on industries or functions and see how professionals meet difficult challenges.
