Room 352


The Graduate College Rebel Research and Mentorship Program (RAMP) is designed to provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable research/scholarly/creative skills and mentorship skills, respectively. Doctoral or MFA students work closely with undergraduate student mentees on a research/creative/scholarly project. Through this partnership, graduate students will learn how to mentor students. The pair is also overseen by a faculty advisor. One requirement for participation in the Rebel RAMP is that the graduate student also participates in the Graduate College Mentorship Certification program. If they are accepted into RAMP, they will automatically be enrolled in this program. By having undergraduate students and graduate students work together with faculty member oversight, this program will more broadly help to foster a strong campus-wide scholarly community. The Rebel Research and Mentorship Program is co-sponsored by the Graduate College and the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education.

Eligible graduate students must submit all application materials as a single PDF to the Graduate College Professional Development Academy at by Monday, February 25, 2019. Graduate students are not required to already have an undergraduate student to work with upon submission of their application package. If accepted into the program, the Professional Development Academy team can help graduate students find undergraduate student mentees.
