GradGov Mentorship Program

GradGov Mentorship Program — our flagship initiative exclusively tailored for Georgetown’s (new window) graduate student community. As we launch this pioneering program, our mission is deeply rooted in unlocking unparalleled opportunities tailored specifically for our graduate students (new window), often an undeserved community when it comes to mentorship initiatives.

Our goal is to bridge the academia-industry divide, offering our advanced scholars a chance to gain real-world insights, forge influential connections, and be mentored by leaders in their fields. This endeavor underscores our unwavering commitment to enriching the graduate student experience at Georgetown, ensuring they are equipped, empowered, and inspired to lead in their respective disciplines.
