This year-long programme is part of our digital initiatives announced during the International Education Week 2020.

This program is intended to connect current international students  with students who wish to study abroad in the United States. This initiative is designed to create a mentor-mentee relationship, which we will pair together based off of your interests.

Through Pen Pal 2.0 as a mentor, you will have the opportunity to provide insight on student life in the United States and as a mentee, will help you prepare for a global environment, to learn and exchange experiences and receive helpful advice.


  • Mentors: Current international students pursuing an undergraduate degree at a U.S. university.

  • Mentees: Any student from classes X to XII (based out of Karnataka) 

  • Application deadline for 2020-2021 is now closed. Selected mentor/mentees have been notified via email.


Mentors and Mentees attended our Virtual Social on Friday 4 December 2020 for a detailed overview and to establish connections!
