Oeconomica Mentor Application
We invite third and fourth-year students to apply to become mentors for underclassmen interested in economics. Mentors will be matched with one or more younger students with whom they will meet at least once per quarter to share their experience in economics and related fields. Pairings will be made based on shared interests, goals, and preferences. We will select mentors based on demonstrated knowledge and experience, with a preference for students who have taken upper-level coursework and engaged in faculty-led research.

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, mentors may not get every preference they indicate.
