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

Applications for mentors will open in January. To be considered as a mentor for the 2021-2022 academic year we must receive your application by January 31, 2021. Applications can be emailed to or submitted in person at the Mathematical Sciences Building, room 230.
