G-Force Mentor Program
News and Events
The UT Dallas College G-Force Mentor Program serves students from area high schools who receive college mentoring services. UT Dallas students work 20 hours per week at sites during the academic year and assist mentees with researching colleges, completing admissions applications, planning college visits and applying for financial aid and scholarships. The UT Dallas G-Force Mentors also work closely with their site supervisor to support college initiatives at their school.
The G-Force Mentor Program is a “near-peer” student mentoring program that serves underrepresented students at five high schools in Dallas and Richardson Independent School Districts. UT Dallas students serve as mentors to promote higher education to high school juniors and seniors at each school. The mentors provide mentees hands-on support completing admissions and financial aid applications, searching for scholarships, and selecting a college. In 2011-2012, the program served 1,182 students.
The program was created utilizing a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Work Study Mentorship Program. For more information about serving as a G-Force Mentor or to learn more about the program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (972) 883-4546.
