Sub:Culture Fellows provides mentorship and networking opportunities, which are critical for students of color who may not see individuals in their field who look like them. The one-on-one mentorship helps students navigate the challenges of higher education, identify resources and opportunities, and build meaningful connections with professionals in their field.


Each mentor is provided with up-to-date, evidence-based, trauma-informed mentor training. Mentors commit to mentoring a student for a minimum of one year incorporating check-ins that total at least 10 hours per semester.

We elevate Black voice in mentoring when we ask one question, “Who is missing from the table.”
