Opportunity Description

Graduate Students Mentoring Undergraduates (GSMU) program pairs graduate students with undergraduate scholars to support scholarship and professional development.

The GSMU program strives to collectively create and maintain a safe space for the cultivation of open, authentic, and honest relationships with GSMU community members. 

Graduate students mentor undergraduate students with the goal of exposing them to graduate studies and encouraging them to explore different disciplines and post-baccalaureate journeys. Students are encouraged to reflect on their undergraduate experiences thus far and consider how to shape future experiences in service of their pursuit of graduate studies

Undergraduate scholars from the following programs are eligible.

  • Pre-Professional Programs (P3)
  • OADI Research Scholars (ORSP)
  • McNair Scholars Program
  • Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program
  • Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s (HHMI) Fellows Program
  • New York State Opportunity Programs (NYSOP).

Graduate students enrolled in research degrees are encouraged to become mentors. 

This is a collaborative initiative between the Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives (OADI) and Graduate School Office of Inclusion & Student Engagement (OISE).
