Predoctoral Academic Mentorship Program

Predoctoral Academic Mentorship Program (PAMP) provides comprehensive mentorship support for undergraduate and masters students who wish to apply to a PhD program in the US. This program organizes workshops and seminars on navigating different aspects of academic career, including conducting original research, finding internships, and preparing for PhD applications. Moreover, the PAMP program assigns every student to a group and matches them with individual mentors to provide them personalized support. The PAMP mentors are volunteer graduate students pursuing PhD degrees in top schools in the US, including MIT, Harvard, and Boston University. Every month, student groups will meet with their mentors to receive guidance and to set goals for the future. These monthly meetings will help students build strong resumes as well as discuss the challenges they might face during their PhD applications.

This program is open to all research-minded, motivated, and hardworking students from all over the world who are interested in pursuing a PhD degree in the US. All undergraduate and masters students are eligible to apply to this program. Admitted students are required to attend the three mandatory workshops held throughout the year. Furthermore, PAMP fellows need to meet with their assigned mentors and groups to keep on track with their goals.
