  • How much will I get paid?

    Forum Mentors are paid for each question they answer, and rates vary depending on Nanodegree program. Payments may range from $6-13 per question. Mentors who work in the forums have earned an average of $500/month.

    1-on-1 mentors are paid $25 per chat session, each of which lasts approximately 30 minutes. Mentors who conduct 1:1 appointments have earned an average of $245/month.

    Reviewers earn an average payment per project of $25, but payment varies between $5-$50 depending on the degree of knowledge required to review the project.

  • Will I get paid for training?

    We do not offer compensation for any mentorship training.

  • Do I need to have a U.S. visa to participate?

    No, a U.S. visa is not required, as this is a contract opportunity through Udacity. Mentors are not employees of Udacity. Mentor opportunities are available around the world. Your country's eligibility is dependent on PayPal's mass payment method restrictions. See a list of supported countries below.

  • Do I live in an eligible country?

    In order to receive payment, you must own a PayPal account in one of the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Emirates, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Guadeloupe, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Martinique, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Reunion, Romania, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, Venezuela, Vietnam

  • Why isn't my country on the list of supported countries?

    Udacity pays Mentors via PayPal mass payments, meaning that we can only certify mentors in countries for which PayPal has enabled mass payments. If this changes in the future, we may allow Mentor applicants from more countries to participate in this program.
