The Lady Cardinal Mentorship Program is a 5-week summer paid enrichment opportunity for high school girls in North Carolina who are interested in exploring careers in science, technology, engineering, and/ or mathematics within state government. The 2020 Lady Cardinal Mentorship Program lasts from June 15, 2020 to July 17, 2020. Females who have completed 9th grade are eligible to apply. Students must complete an application in order to be considered for the program. The Lady Cardinals mission is to serve as an educational steppingstone into North Carolina state government, focusing on high school girls and encouraging careers within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The program nurtures the interest of STEM-related fields among high school girls to ultimately reduce the growing disparity in employment and earnings among women and men in North Carolina, particularly in STEM-based careers.
