Each Fall, the SOFC accepts applications for those interested in becoming mentees. Mentee positions are open to any freshman and sophomore undergraduate student enrolled at Boston College. All schools (CSOM, A&S, LSOE, CSON) are encouraged to apply. As the SOFC only takes on about ten mentees per year, positions are competitive. Mentees will begin to attend SOFC meetings upon acceptance, and will serve as observers for the duration fall semester. During this training period, mentees will not have the ability to vote on funding decisions but are expected to provide valuable insight as well as absorb the essential SOFC procedures. In January, mentees will join the rest of the committee as voting members, and proceed to serve a two-year term on the SOFC.
