2022-2023 Schedule

We are so excited to have you join us this year for the FER. We have an exciting curriculum to help you develop a project of your choosing. Our program involves 16-weeks of sessions and activities. This will involve six different sessions where you will be able to work with mentors from graduate or undergraduate institutions across the country. All the resources you need are linked on this page.

Mentorship sessions will be held at the designated time your school selected. Our mentors will meet you virtually on https://workadventu.re/. Your teachers will give you access to the specific link for you to join. Be sure to check the “Activity” column to see what you need to do each week to be sure you have what you need for each session.

This chart will tell you what you need to know. If you have any questions email us a mentorship.fer@gmail.com
