University Scholars Mentoring

An informal, intellectual mentoring program offers interdisciplinary research possibilities, helps to shape multidisciplinary interests into an interdisciplinary program, and encourages collaborative thinking and intellectual risk-taking.  Mentoring also allows for more informal advising and conversations about life experience and development.  Mentoring in the USP is a student-driven endeavor.  Relationships are established between pairs of graduate or professional school students and undergraduates.  All mentors/mentees are required to meet at least twice per semester, if not more frequently.  The USP will reimburse up to $12 per person, twice a semester, or a maximum of $24 per person per semester.  Students are requested to submit reimbursements via the Duke@Work online system.  Click here for a step-by-step PDF instruction guide: Duke@Work Miscellaneous Reimbursement Instructions.
