SIB Mentors Program
The Stanford I-Mentors at Bechtel (SIB) Mentors Program is designed to support incoming international undergraduate students' transition to life at Stanford and the United States through mentorship.
Incoming international students who sign up to participate in the program are paired with two trained undergraduate upper-class mentors who are either international students or are closely connected to the international student experience. Participating mentees will be matched with their mentors during the summer prior to the mentees’ Stanford arrival. From summer to the end of the Spring Quarter of the academic year, mentees can rely on their assigned mentors for support to answer questions and help acclimate them to the Stanford community.
Joining the SIB Mentors Programs as an incoming international student means you become a member of a “SIB Fam” cohort with about ten other incoming international students. In addition to those connections, you’ll have other opportunities to meet incoming frosh international students during SIB Program-hosted events throughout the year.
Continuing undergraduate students interested in becoming a mentor in the SIB Mentors Program for the following academic year can find a link to an application on this page during Spring Quarter. All incoming international undergraduates are invited to join the program the summer before their planned Autumn arrival.
