Peer Mentor Program


The FGP Peer Mentor Program matches first generation first-year students with upper level first generation mentors to help students transition and adjust to life at MIT, and learn from their mentors’ experience of navigating MIT as a FGLI student. Mentor-mentee pairs are expected to maintain weekly communication via text, phone calls, letters, etc., and are required to attend one (1) FGP event together per semester.

Who should apply?

  • First generation first year students who would like to be matched with an upper-class MIT student
  • First generation sophomores, juniors, and seniors who think an incoming student could benefit from their experience and support
