Mentorship Program

2023 Applications will open in the Fall!

The KPA graduate student mentorship program launched in the Spring of 2021. The program aims to match graduate students with undergraduate or post-bac students interested in pursuing advanced degrees in psychology. This program will support increased diversity in program applicants while helping graduate students develop mentorship and leadership skills. We also see immense value in connecting students from across various experience levels and regions of Kentucky as we move into an increasingly virtual space.
