I am a mentee from outside the U.S. When will I receive my stipend?

It may take up to 30 US business days for the funds to be processed via wire-transfer and released by a bank outside the United States. A business day means any day except any Saturday, any Sunday, or any day which is a federal legal holiday, or any day on which banking institutions are authorized or required by law or other governmental action to close.

I have submitted all prerequisite tasks. Why is my application still pending?

After you have marked all prerequisite tasks as 'Submitted' , the mentorship admin will be notified. Your application status as a whole will remain as "Pending" until the admin changes it to 'Accepted' or 'Declined'.

How do I upload proof of eligibility for the prerequisite task "Participation permission from school or employer"?

An upload is not necessary. By marking the prerequisite task as 'Submitted', you are certifying that you have permission from your school or employer to participate in the mentorship program.

Can I be accepted into more than one mentorship at the same time?

No, you may only participate in one LFX Mentorship. If you are selected for two different mentorships, the administrators of the mentorship will reach out to you for further discussion.

Can the LFX Mentorship be used for interning credit?

Once the admin of the mentorship marks a mentee as 'graduated', The LFX Platform provides an email confirming the mentee has graduated from the program. Any requests for certificates or letters should be directed toward the admin of the mentorship itself. If you have a question about whether a specific mentorship would satisfy an internship requirement, you should ask the admin of the mentorship. Contact details will be found on the mentorship project's card.


How can I be added as a mentor?
