Graduate Mentor 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. All graduate students interested in being a mentor should apply through the Office of Graduate Student Life.
Who can be a mentee?
Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors who are participants of the McNair Scholars program are welcomed to apply.
What is the time commitment?
The program will run from October through May. The fall term will require one orientation session with all participants and mentors in October with lunch, two informal one-on-one meetings between mentor and mentee between October and December and a final event with all participants in December. The Spring term session will have a similar format pending the recommendations of program participants.
