LITE Mentors

LITE Mentors

Each year, we recruit Kettering undergraduate women to mentor LITE Program participants. They're a lot like you. They love math and science. And, they plan to make a difference in the real world by pursuing engineering careers in a wide variety of industries.

LITE mentors will contact participants as soon as our acceptance letters go out, and keep in touch with them until the program begins in mid-July. They'll provide information about what to pack, and what to expect. Once LITE begins, participants and mentors will really get to know each other and many friendships will persist long after the LITE Program ends.

If you'd like to contact a LITE mentor, please let us know. Email us at and we'll put you in touch with one of our students.
