Welcome, Mentors!

What Is a REX Mentor?

As a mentor in the REX program you are able to apply your high level of research experience to help UBC undergraduate students create, interact with, and present their own original research projects at the annual Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC). Mentoring in REX will include opportunities such as:

Teaching students about aspects of research and research fields you are familiar with

Guiding students through the process of making a research question a formal presentation

Supporting students as they work hard to create their own research

Showing students how interesting and rewarding research can be in all faculties! 

Every mentor will be matched with a group of 2 – 5 undergraduate students that have eagerly applied to work with you. Mentors work together with their Mentees to decide what the group is interested in researching and how you will collaborate to make the best project possible.

How to Apply

  • (JUNE) Submit the INITIAL 2019-20 REX Mentor Registration form
  • (LATE AUG) Confirm registration by submitting the FINAL 2019-20 REX Mentor Registration form
    • Short description of your research (200 words max.) → make sure to write it so that an undergrad would understand the gist of it!
    • Description of what you would like to do with your mentees (400 words max.)

DEADLINE: September 7th at 11:59PM
Students will apply to be mentees during the month of September, and mentors will receive students’ applications in the first week of October. You will then have the opportunity to rank the mentees who applied for you, in order of who you would most like to work with. The deadline for this will be October 15th.

The REX Committee will then carry out a matching process by mentor-mentee preference, and groups will be formed by mid-to-late October..
