SOARS Needs Writing Mentors!

Greetings from the SOARS Program! We’d like to invite all UCAR, NCAR, UOP Staff to consider volunteering as a SOARS Writing Mentor for the 2011 Summer Program: May 24-August 5.

SOARS is dedicated to broadening participation in the atmospheric and related sciences.  Each year, 20 to 25 students spend their summers at UCAR collaborating with their mentors to conduct original research. 

A writing mentor offers one-on-one feedback to their protégé on writing and presentations. The writing mentor supplements the instruction protégés receive in their weekly writing workshop and spends about two hours per week with the protégé.

We currently still need ten more writing mentors.  To volunteer as a mentor, fill out an application online at

No prior experience is necessary.

Will this event be webcast to the public by NCAR|UCAR?: 
Announcement Timing: 
April 14, 2011 to April 21, 2011
