GEMS (Girls EXCELing in Math and Science)

An EXCEL Mentorship Program

GEMS is a mentorship program for incoming EXCEL female freshman students. This mentorship program pairs up EXCEL junior and senior female students (mentors) with freshman female EXCEL students (mentees). The program provides opportunities for networking with EXCEL female role models (from the academia and the industry) and social events to increase the bonds between the EXCEL freshman students, older peers, faculty and UCF staff involved with the EXCEL program.

Applications for mentors are being accepted at this time. To be considered as a mentor for the 2018-2019 academic year we must receive your application by February 9, 2018. Applications can be emailed to or submitted in person at the Mathematical Sciences Building, room 230.
