The SISSA Alumni Mentoring Program, established by SISSA through the Valorisation & Innovation Office in collaboration with SISSA Alumni Society, aims at boosting the relationships between SISSA Alumni and current SISSA students.

This connection helps students prepare for their future careers and lets alumni share their expertise.


MENTOR: a SISSA Alumnus driven by the spirit of "giving back", who is willing to support students in this transition phase of their life and professional path, in particular beyond academia. 

MENTEE: a student, researcher or SISSA's graduate having completed their PhD cycle whitin 2 years.
