Welcome to Future GRADS MentorSHPE!

The Future GRADS MentorSHPE Program facilitates one-to-one mentoring relationships that connect graduate school applicants with mentors to guide them through the application process. Mentees will receive guidance on the application process from those who have experienced the process themselves. 

Please note that mentee applicants must be current SHPE members who are actively working on a graduate school application for Fall 2025 or 2026. Mentees can be current undergraduate students going directly into graduate school after graduation or professional members who are planning to return to college to earn a masters degree. 

Meetings and tasks are designed to help mentees navigate the graduate school application process. Mentors will give guidance on tasks such as GRE preparation, securing solid recommendations, completing your CV and personal statement, evaluating programs you plan to apply to, networking opportunities to learn more about graduate programs, and more!
