The Graduate-Undergraduate Mentorship Program is a collaboration between the University of Saskatchewan Undergraduate Students’ Union (USSU) and the Graduate Students’ Association (GSA). This program aims to connect undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing graduate studies with qualified graduate students in similar fields of interest through mentorship.
As mentors, graduate students will assist undergraduate students by providing guidance and advice on various topics relating to graduate studies. For example, the application process, program selection, research and funding opportunities, and student-supervisor relationships.
The Graduate-Undergraduate Mentorship Program will strengthen the community at the University of Saskatchewan and build relationships between students at varying levels of academia.
