Description: The Beyond the Master's: Lunch with a Ph.D. Student mentoring program runs from September-November. Its purpose is to help master's students in two ways:
- Encourage terminal master's students and/or SUGS students to continue on for a Ph.D.
- Provide guidance for students who applied to a Ph.D. program, but were admitted into a master's program, to learn how to successfully progress into a Ph.D. program
- Ph.D. students are asked to register by 9/5 at http://goo.gl/forms/M0os2mXlwE. Ph.D. students should have been admitted to a master's program, then moved into a Ph.D. program.
- Master's/SUGS students are invited to register between 9/6 and 11/11 at http://goo.gl/forms/ezmma3niFA. Note: a limited number of students may participate in this program, so it operates on a first-come-first-served basis.
- The Office of Graduate Education matches students based on preferences
- The students will determine when to meet for lunch at a Union eatery
- Lunch is FREE! Ph.D. mentors will be provided with Munchie Money to pay for the meals
- Mentors should review the Beyond the Master's Mentor Guide
- Master's/SUGS students can ask questions about the difference between master's and Ph.D. programs, benefits of obtaining a Ph.D., transitioning, timeline, deadlines, tips for selecting faculty advisors, funding, work/life balance, etc.
- The mentor may take their mentee to their lab for a tour, if possible
- Both mentors and mentees should take the online survey to share their experiences with the program: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/beyondms16
