Your Mentoring Experience – Travel Grant

While long-distance mentoring relationships are highly valuable, meeting face-to-face can assist in strengthening long-lasting professional mentoring relationships for both mentors and mentees. Students participating in the Professional Mentoring Program may be eligible for funds to travel and visit their mentors. Visit the Travel Grant webpage for more information.


Program Updates – Gathering Feedback

We encourage all of our mentors and mentees to complete the post-meeting surveys following each monthly meeting. These surveys are six questions long, and are to be based on your most recent meeting with your mentor/mentee. Links to mentor and mentee specific surveys can be found below. If you have any questions, please email austin33@k-state.edu.
