Graduate Peer Mentors for Extramural Fellowships

The Graduate Division’s office of Fellowships & Financial Services is pleased to announce the services of the Graduate Peer Mentors (GPM) for Extramural Fellowships.

The GPMs serve as a resource for current and prospective graduate students to develop and enhance their fluency and familiarity with extramural graduate fellowships and their value. With the guidance of the graduate mentors, along with expertise from UCLA’s Graduate Division, Graduate Writing Center and Scholarship Resource Center, students have the opportunity to strengthen their applications and sharpen their grantsmanship. While serving as a valuable resource to the campus community, the GPMs also benefit by developing their mentoring and communication skills.

The GPMs’ contact information is on the Graduate Peer Mentors for Extramural Fellowships Flyer. Feel free to contact one for a 1:1 or group consultation or a department presentation.

Here is a short bio about the GPM.
