The Graduate Undergraduate Mentorship Program (GUM) is currently recruiting both graduate and undergraduate student participants for the 18-19 cycle. I hope you will share this excellent opportunity with your students and communities. Please let us know if you would like a copy of the flyer as well.
GUM’s vision is to develop a unified campus by creating a bridge between graduate/professional school and undergraduate students through mentorship opportunities. Although all UCLA undergraduate students are welcome to apply to GUM, the program’s specific goal is to impact marginalized students who plan to apply to graduate programs in education, public policy, social welfare, urban planning, public health, psychology, neuroscience, sociology and humanities.

Benefits for Graduate Students:
