Grad-Undergrad Mentoring Program

About Grad-Undergrad Mentoring Program

NOTE (Spring 2015): We are looking, in particular, for graduate student mentors, who are pursuing an MD, an MBA, or a PhD in biostatistics. If you have any questions about the program, please do not hesitate to email the Mentoring Fellow (mentoring@gsc.upenn.edu).

The Grad-Undergrad Mentoring Program at the University of Pennsylvania pairs undergraduates with graduate and professional students to help undergraduates learn first-hand about graduate school.  Graduate student mentors offer a unique "insider's" perspective on what it's like to apply to and attend graduate school.

For undergraduate mentees, participating is a fun and social activity that can help you expand your horizons, as well as broaden and deepen your understanding of educational and career opportunities. We currently have mentors in a wide array of fields, including architecture, biology, business, education, engineering, law, medicine, poltical science, psychology, sociology, and more! And we will make every effort to find you a suitable mentor in your academic field of interest.

Graduate student mentors find the experience highly rewarding and not time-intensive. Participating is a great way to develop the mentoring skills you will need, as you advance in your career, as well.

This program is cosponsored by Penn's Graduate Student Center, GAPSA, and UA.

Undergraduates interested in attending grad school are also encouraged to take advantage of these other Penn resources:
