What if we don't have the required mentor for the grant?

Some of the grants above require a mentor from the company.  

But what if you don't have a connection there?

  1. If there is a company contact in the grant application or description, email them and ask how you can request a mentor.

  2. Check with the parents of your team members.  You never know who might know someone who works a the company.  Ask if you can use their email address or...even better...ask if they're willing to spend some time mentoring!

  3. If neither of the above pan out, contact your Regional Director to help make a connection.
