Graduate Mentorship Program
The Boston College Graduate Mentor Program matches Boston College graduate and professional students with Boston College undergraduate students from low income, first generation, or underrepresented backgrounds. The program is designed to help participants share experiences around graduate studies, how the choice was made to pursue a particular discipline, and the challenges and rewards of being a graduate student. The ultimate goal is to have participants share stories and offer support and guidance in exploring graduate work.
Any graduate or professional school student at Boston College is eligible to be a mentor. An understanding of issues facing first generation and underrepresented college students is essential as is a willingness to share one’s own experiences in applying for and attending graduate school.
We are no longer accepting mentor applications for the 2012-2013 academic year.
The program will run from October 2012 through April 2013.There will be a total of four programs throughout the course of the year that Mentors and Mentees are encouraged to attend. Matched pairs are expected to meet once a month.
The undergraduate students will read and select a mentor based on academic and personal interests in the form below. Therefore, it is important to describe your experiences and interests carefully.
