This is the kind of access you came to DC for.

 The goal of the Mentorship Program is to connect students with leaders in politics and public service–the practitioners who are actively engaged in the real world of politics.

  • Mentors and students meet 1x/month
  • Mentors will find opportunities for students to “shadow” their work
  • Mentors and students will be respectful of each other’s time
  • Students will participate in Mentee Orientation at beginning of semester
Students – If you are interested in participating in the GU Politics Mentorship Program for Fall 2018, please fill out this questionnaire by Friday, August 31st, 2018. Matches will be made in September 2018. 
Mentors – We are always recruiting great Mentors for our students! If you are interested in participating in the program, please fill out this questionnaire so we can find a good student match for you!

Please note that while we try our best to find an ideal match for all students who express interest, we focus on quality matches over quantity. This means that it is possible that we won’t have an ideal match for you this semester, but can work with you in person to identify potential Mentors for you outside of the formal semester-long program.
