Attention Grad Students! Participate in the Graduate-Undergraduate Mentorship (GUMP) Program for the upcoming Winter 2017 semester.


Monday, December 19, 2016

We are currently seeking interested graduate students to participate in the Graduate-Undergraduate Mentorship (GUMP) Program for the upcoming Winter 2017 semester.  GUMP is designed to pair graduate students with interested undergraduate students, and we are accepting mentors at any stage of their program. The objectives of the pairings would be to engage in the topics or material of interest to the undergrad, to provide feedback on writing or presentations, to learn about research opportunities, and/or to gain insight about graduate school and the graduate school application process.

The time commitment for mentorship should not be too demanding. We expect that direct interactions with paired undergraduate students would be at a minimum of once a month. As needed and as participants wish, other meetings could take place and be conducted through e-mail or face-to-face meetings. The timeline would be from January-April.  Additionally, two events will be held throughout the semester for all of the students involved to participate. 

This includes the first event, which is set to take place on January 25th at 4pm and will consist of matching graduate students with undergrads through games, including BINGO.

If you are interested in participating, please send a response outlining your research interests to kelsey.pennanen1@ucalgary.ca

We look forward to your participation! 

Thank you,

GUMP Co-ordination Team
