The MPAGS Undergraduate Mentoring Program is a free service offered by MPAGS. The purpose of the program is to pair undergraduate students who are interested in the field of psychology with graduate students who can answer questions and provide support to undergraduates in their job searches or graduate school endeavors.
By participating in the MPAGS Undergraduate Mentoring Program, undergraduate students can hear first-hand experience about jobs in the field of psychology, the process of applying to graduate schools, and learn more about the different psychology disciplines (e.g., clinical, counseling, school) as well as the types of degrees (e.g., MA/MS, Psy.D., Ph.D.).
Currently, graduate students from a variety of graduate schools representing various education levels (e.g. MA/MS, Psy.D., Ph.D.) in Maryland and other states, volunteer to participate as mentors for the program. MPAGS maintains a list of graduate student volunteers who represent a wide spectrum of experiences, education, specialties, and personal interests in psychology.
To apply as an MPAGS mentor or mentee, e-mail the following information in an email to Jueta McCutchan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mentors and mentees will be paired based on similar interests, experiences, and career/academic pursuits and will receive an email with contact information for their mentor/mentee. It is up to the undergrad and their mentor to decide how they would like to work together whether through phone conversation, over email, or meetings in person.
|Mentees must be undergraduate students or no schooling beyond an undergraduate degree.||Mentors must be current members of MPAGS.|
