Oeconomica Mentee Application
We invite first and second-year students who are interested in economics to apply for year-long mentorship from UChicago upperclassmen. Each mentee will be matched with one third or fourth-year economics student based on shared interests, goals, and preferences. Mentees will meet with their mentors at least once per quarter for guidance on academics, research, careers, graduate school, and more.  

For the form below, you do not need to write in full sentences, but please make sure your responses are complete.

Due to logistical constraints, mentees may not get every preference they indicate.
