Peer Mentors are upper-class students who serve as resources and role models for first-year students
The University of Delaware First Year Seminar Program is seeking Peer Mentors for the fall semester of 2023.
Peer Mentors are upper-class students who serve as resources and role models for first-year students. To serve as a FYS Peer Mentor, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.8 and be involved in several organizations around campus.
These students serve as liaisons for first-year students, build a sense of academic community among a small group of first-year students, and serve as resources for first-year students with questions or concerns.
All Peer Mentors are required to take a one-credit, pass/fail class (UNIV301) that meets in the second half of the spring semester of the 2022-23 academic year.
Beginning fall 2023, Peer Mentors will receive $900 in compensation over the course of the semester, with an additional $100 for each year they serve, with a maximum stipend of $1100.
Peer Mentors receive one credit for attending and passing the training class.
The application deadline is noon on Friday, Oct. 7.
For those seeking more information, the First Year Seminar Program will hold an optional Peer Mentor interest meeting at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28, in room 304 of Gore Hall.
