How to Create a Winning Application for the Soho House Mentorship Program

With our Soho House Mentorship Program going on year three, it’s a great time to finally make your application happen. This is how you can stand out and work on your passion project with the guidance of a world-class mentor—all for free.  

Let your passion shine through. 

Our past mentees from Soho House Hong Kong and Mumbai come from a wide range of backgrounds and what unites them is a sense of passion and curiosity. What are your interests? What do you care about? What do you dream of achieving? Tell us all about it in your application form

Share your project or idea. 

At the end of the program, each mentee showcases a final project, which can be anything from paintings and short films to comic books and novellas. Your final project can be anything you dream it to be, and it doesn’t have to be fully fleshed out when you apply. You just need to have an idea to run with. Our mentors will guide you and help you bring that idea to life. 

Tell us how we can help you. 

Think of what you want to learn from your mentor and how you want to be supported in this program. Our mentors come from diverse industries such as advertising, architecture, event management, entrepreneurship, fashion, film, interior design, marketing, photography, TV production, writing, technology, and so much more. The more you can tell us about what kind of help you need, the better we can match you with the right mentor. 

Be ready to commit. 

The self-paced program runs for 12 weeks and comes with regular workshops and check-ins with your mentor so you can finish your final project at the end of the program. We are fully committed to helping you achieve your goal, and we’ll need your active participation to make it a reality. 

Be authentic. 

This isn’t a contest for the most impressive grades or portfolio—we’re looking for passionate, purposeful applicants who want to make their dream project come true, no matter what that is. Lean into your personality, your interests, and your background. Show us what makes you YOU.
