How much does it cost?
MentorSET is run by the Women's Engineering Society and we encourage mentors and mentees to be members when they join MentorSET. Benefits of and further details of WES membership can be found here.
Mentors are volunteers, and there is no fee to become a MentorSET mentor.
Mentees are required to pay a joining fee of £120. In celebration of the centenary of The Women's Engineering Society, the joining fee is reduced to £100 for all mentees joining in June 2019. This fee funds the operational running of the programme, which includes the finding of a suitable mentor and 12-months of guidance and support support.
