Discover what's right for you

Udacity offers a variety of different mentorship roles, and most are completely remote. Our Mentor role encompasses two tasks: classroom mentorship and project reviews! Each application will be considered to complete both tasks. Some programs only require one mentor task based on student program requirements.

  • How will I get paid?

    Mentors are paid for each mentee they are assigned and per project reviewed.

  • Will I get paid for onboarding?

    We do not offer compensation for any mentorship onboarding tasks.

  • 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 region's eligibility is dependent on PayPal's mass payment method restrictions. See a list of supported regions below.

  • Do I live in an eligible region?

    In order to receive payment, you must own a PayPal account in one of the mass payment supported countries. Supported countries are surfaced directly on the application for selection.

  • Why isn't my region on the list of supported regions?

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