Clean Water Science Network’s Mentoring Program

September 7, 2023

Clean Water Science Network (CWSN) is currently seeking graduate students and alumni that are interested in becoming mentors for the CWSN mentoring program. Clean Water Science Network is a 501c3 started by UT Austin Environmental Engineering graduate students/alum ( This is the fifth year of our mentoring program, which started with 6 mentees in the first cohort and grew to 120 in the 2022-2023 cohort.

As a mentor, you will be paired with motivated and driven undergraduate students from Latin America interested in water-related graduate education. Your commitment would be 4-5 hrs per month and includes virtually meeting with your mentee and attending a structured set of monthly webinars and discussion groups (the 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7 pm CT, but recorded as well for those with occasional conflicts). This is a great opportunity to build your leadership and communication skills, strengthen your resume,  become more culturally aware, and network with other mentors from around the US. Last year we had participants in the program from many different academic and professional institutions, providing awesome networking opportunities!

If you are interested, please fill out this form by midnight on September 29th, 2023:

We will let you know by October 4th if you have been accepted into the program. If so, the first webinar is October 10th. If you have any questions, please email us at Feel free to share this email with anyone that might be interested. 

Please note, CWSN’s web platform is via Google so a Google based email account is encouraged for participation in the program (for access to content on the CWSN webpage).

Thanks for considering,

The CWSN Team
