Mentored Employment Program


The Mentored Employment Program provides CoF Undergraduates paid opportunities to work with members of CoF Faculty on research projects or field experiences. These types of experiences enhance students' professional skills, provide important mentor/protégé relationships and guidance while assisting faculty with research that is important to the College.

CoF Undergraduates and Post-Baccalaureate students, from all College of Forestry undergraduate majors, are eligible to apply. Priority funding is available for students from diverse, underrepresented or underserved backgrounds that enhance a pluralistic community in the College of Forestry. Students whose academic status would benefit from a mentorship experience are encouraged to apply.

The Student Resources & Engagement Office will request proposals from CoF Faculty. The Mentored Employment Program provides a limited amount funding to pay student wages/OPE. Mentored Employment opportunities are available for fall, winter and spring terms.
