We are home to a team of expert mentors, comprising of individuals who have pursued or are currently pursuing or have received offers to pursue their higher education from HEIs across the world. They come from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and universities and have benefitted from diverse funding, internship, and research avenues. It is this diversity and experience that they bring to the table.
More importantly, many of our mentors themselves belong to marginalised communities in South Asia. Having themselves navigated access barriers in their higher education journey, they understand the challenges that lie ahead for our mentees best and are well-placed to provide meaningful advice.
