The SPIA Peer Mentorship Program is now accepting applications for Spring 2024. If you participated in a previous semester, you can participate again and be paired with a new partner (and if you want to continue meeting with a previous mentor or mentee, you can do that without signing up again).

What is this?

  • This program is open to all first-years (or second-years) looking for opportunities within SPIA, professional organizations, summer internships, and more. Third- or fourth-years willing to share their experiences should apply to be mentors. Mentees will be matched to experienced SPIA mentors for one-on-one meetings, and mentors will have access to resources to connect their mentees to opportunities within SPIA’s network.

What is expected of me?

  1. Meet with your mentor or mentee at least ONCE every FOUR weeks (virtually or in person).
  2.  Schedules change—make sure to give your mentor or mentee notice if you need to reschedule.
  3. Once accepted and paired, follow Program Guidelines during meetings and read over Program


  • There will be optional social events throughout the semester for you and your partner to attend. Plus, program leadership will share resources and opportunities throughout the semester.

How do I sign up?

  • The application for this cycle of the SPIA Mentorship Program can be found here.

The deadline to apply is TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2024 at 11:59 PM.
