HUMPHREY GLOBAL MENTOR PROGRAM
Open now for second year student applications
APPLICATIONS ACCEPTED JULY 16 THROUGH AUGUST 15
Dear Humphrey School Student:
The Humphrey School Alumni Society invites you to apply for the 2012-2013 Mentor Program. For over 25 years the mentor program has been linking Humphrey students with alumni who share their professional interests. Now we have added a new Global Mentor Program (GMP) for advanced students in global affairs and related areas. Both the GMP and our traditional Domestic Mentor programs run throughout the academic year.
GLOBAL MENTOR PROGRAM (GMP)
The global mentor program connects mentors doing international work with advanced Humphrey students who hope to develop international careers themselves. Global mentors can be working anywhere in the world. They will largely connect with their protégés via email, Skype and other distance technologies.
Second year (or more advanced) students whose programs focus on international issues may apply for the Global Mentor Program (GMP) during the summer enrollment period. Available spaces are limited.
TO APPLY TO THE MENTOR PROGRAM
All the material you need to apply to the Global Mentor Program is available at http://www.hhh.umn.edu/alumni/mentor/Enrollment.html. Scroll to the bottom of the page, under "For Students"
1. Review the SAMPLE MENTOR BIOGRAPHIES for GMP. Links to biographies (at the bottom of the enrollment page) are password protected (password: mentor).
2. Complete the GMP Student Enrollment Form, which includes a 500 word essay about your career interests & what benefits you hope to gain from the mentor program. Applications accepted Monday, July 16 through Wednesday, August 15, 2012.
If you have questions about the program or the application process, please contact Jane Vega at vegax004(at)umn.edu.
We hope you will join Humphrey students and alumni in exploring the many career paths in public service through our mentor program.
