Anthropology Mentorship Program

Author: Anthropology Dept.

The Graduate Students are happy to announce an Anthropology Mentorship Program. In this program, we will match undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to help and advise students as they move through their undergraduate degrees. Mentors can help with graduate school applications, thesis projects, conference papers, course work, and can offer general guidance as an additional resource for students.

If you would like a graduate student mentor, please fill out this Google form so that we can learn more about you and your needs. You can also email Amanda Cortez or Emily deWet with any questions.
