UCINCEE Mentorship Program

The UConn Cultural and Educational Exchange with Indigenous Nations (UCINCEE) is a program for local Native youth that provides them with mentorship from both students and faculty.

Components of the Scholarship 

Community 

Building a strong sense of community is integral to UCINCEE, and one of the ways we achieve this is through in person gatherings. Each semester we will convene as a group three times, giving local youth and their families the chance to get to know one another, as well as program affiliated UConn faculty, staff, and students. The meetings will consist of cultural activities, food, and of course community.

Mentorship 

Undergraduate mentorship is another great benefit UCINCEE offers. Each year a select group of undergraduate mentors are selected and trained to act as guides for youth involved in the program. In the spring mentors will be regularly available to meet with the youth whenever they want, whether it's help with a school project or guidance on the college application process our mentors out there to help guide the youth navigate whatever they need assistance with.
