EACH HUGO MENTORSHIP COMBINES AN INDEPENDENT RESEARCH PROJECT WITH EXPERT-GUIDED STUDY

Every project is unique, reflecting the students' specific learning objectives and interests. Final projects range from college-level research papers to product prototypes.
ALL CATEGORIES

Career mentorships allow students to develop and showcase essential skills that set the necessary foundation for a future profession, whether it be in sports management, media, arts, law, politics and more. Students in career mentorships have developed pitch decks, slideshow presentations, policy proposals, and portfolios showcasing their work, developing their writing and public speaking skills with the help of mentors who are educators with years of experience in the career field their mentees aspire to enter.
