BME Mentoring

The BME Mentoring Scheme connects LSE alumni and Black and ethnic minority current students, giving them the opportunity to share experiences and help shape their career trajectories through industry insight.

Information for Mentors

We’re looking for LSE alumni to mentor BME LSE students. If you’re looking for a new challenge, or want to pass on some of your wisdom to a current LSE student, this is the opportunity for you!

We expect all mentors to maintain regular contact with their mentees, catching up at least once per month. If you are matched with a mentee, we will get in touch with guidance on mentoring to help guide you through the process.

If you have any questions or inquiries about the mentoring scheme, get in touch with us at

Applications for mentors are now open!
Deadline: 9am on 16th November 2020

Information for Mentees

LSESU’s BME Mentoring Scheme connects BME students at LSE with some of LSE’s alumni, giving students an insight into different industries, and helping to inform their career trajectory.

All mentees who are successfully matched with a mentor are expected to maintain regular contact with the mentor, catching up at least once a month. In the application form for the scheme, you will be able to specify any preferences you have about your potential mentor and we will try to match you with someone who matches those criteria as much as possible. However, it may not be possible for us to do so in all instances.

If you have any questions about the scheme, you can email
