A mentorship program for women interested in STEM studies after CEGEP

January 18 to April 30, 2019

“Try Concordia” is a FREE program designed for women in their last year of CEGEP planning their university studies. It’s specifically geared to towards those:

  • interested in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
  • seeking insight into university life
  • looking for tips from experienced students
  • keen to check out different study options before deciding on a university


What’s involved

University students will introduce their CEGEP protegés to STEM studies at Concordia. In addition to some group programming, prospective students will be able to have individual meetings with current students.


For the winter 2019 cohort, women who are 18 years of age or older can sign up by January 17, 2019. The program is free but space is limited.


The program lasts 14 weeks, from January 18 to April 30, 2019.


“Try Concordia” will be asking for feedback. By providing their thoughts at the end of the program, participants will help improve the next edition, planned for the fall of 2019.

More details

With “Try Concordia,” CEGEP students are mentored by Concordia graduate and undergraduate students. The mentors come from departments within the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science and the Faculty of Arts and Science.

“Try Concordia” covers the broad spectrum of STEM disciplines and encourages exchanges across fields.

Mentors and protegés will meet biweekly for 2-4 hours to take part in projects, courses, and student activities.

The matching of mentors and protegés is based on the interests expressed by the CEGEP students. The process will take place during the kick-off meeting on January 18, 2019.

As space is limited, students will be selected based on their application form and a short letter of intent.
