FAQ

What makes someone eligible to be nominated?

They need one of two things: 1) to be a current member of the Mentorship Program for at least a quarter, and 2) members who have been part of the club for at least a quarter. If you are unsure of how long someone has been in the program or club, please email the Mentorship Program and they can check for you!

When is the nomination due?

We will be accepting responses until 11:59 pm on June 5th! Please make sure to get yours in before then!

How long would I be an officer?

Each term is for a year (Fall-Spring). You are allowed to rerun for your position or another position at next year's election. In the event that you are unable or unwilling to fufill your duties, a special procedure can be invoked to relieve you of your position; however, this has yet to be used.

How are applications evaluated?

During the first week after the nomination deadline, the nominations will be blinded and evaluated individually by 2-3 members of the mentorship committee, giving a score for eligibility, leadership, and fit for award category. The scores will then be averaged, and the top five will be selected.
