The Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS) is launching Advancing YU, a new mentorship program for third- and fourth-year students. Advancing YU is broken into two streams, Advancing Women and Advancing Black Students.

Advancing YU is a unique program that offers mentorship, skills development and personalized mentoring. Participants will also receive a scholarship of $1,000 and wrap-around supports from LA&PS. There are no minimum grade point average requirements for students applying to participate, but applicants must be enrolled in an LA&PS program. The deadline to apply is Oct. 3.

Students are expected to invest 20 hours in the program, between October 2021 and March 2022. In return, they will receive guidance and support from LA&PS alumni who are at the top of their fields.

Alumni participating in the program are made up of internationally recognized leaders who are making meaningful differences in their chosen fields. This new program gives LA&PS students an opportunity to learn from the very best.
