Peers, faculty and alumni are available to mentor College students through a variety of programs.
The College Alumni Mentoring Series engages students and alumni in mentoring relationships to help students determine how their current academic paths coincide with career aspirations. The series is composed of events that help to facilitate students’ understanding of life beyond Penn.
The Graduate/Undergraduate Mentoring Program pairs Penn undergraduates with graduate and professional students to help undergraduates learn first-hand about preparing for, applying to, and succeeding in graduate school. The program currently has mentors in a wide array of fields, including architecture, biology, business, education, engineering, law, medicine, political science, psychology, sociology, and more.
The Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (CURF) provides information, advice, resources and encouragement for students pursuing undergraduate research, fellowships and scholarships.
CURF maintains an extensive research directory listing undergraduate and summer and research opportunities. It also provides a directory of, and supports students competing for, national and international fellowships and scholarships. CURF administers the University Scholars and the Benjamin Franklin Scholars programs for highly motivated undergraduates and sponsors numerous talks, presentations and information sessions in addition to offering one-on-one advising.
