GradFUTURES Mentor Collective
Through the GradFUTURES mentorship program, doctoral students have ongoing access to a network of Princeton graduate alumni mentors, who offer guidance and advice across a broad range of fields. Currently enrolled graduate students are matched with a graduate alumni mentor based on common academic and professional interests, life challenges, and experiences.
Additionally, graduate students can use discussion guides and goal-setting activities to help spark meaningful conversations with their alumni mentors and others in their professional network. Topics range from time management and work-life balance to networking and job-seeking advice.
How it Works
The GradFUTURES Mentorship program:
- Provides graduate students with a structured means of initiating and maintaining a professional relationship with a graduate alum in which to receive 1:1 advice and support regarding the challenges of doctoral education and research; professional development strategies; and referrals to others to assist in building the graduate student’s professional network;
- Builds connections and community between Princeton graduate students and graduate alumni who share invaluable insights about their own academic and professional experiences, discuss the skills and competencies needed for career progression, and who support graduate students in navigating their own personal and professional goals during these uncertain times.
