Guarini Fellowships Program

Guarini Fellowships Program

Guarini Fellows are graduate students who will develop programming and serve as peer advisors, mentors, communicators, and advocates. 

Fellows must have strong interpersonal, writing and oral communication skills, the ability to work as a team, and experience to serve as peer advisors, mentors, and advocates for graduate students. 

Fellows will participate in leadership events and will be recognized on the website as Guarini Fellows. Fellows will meet weekly with their Assistant Dean/Director and other fellows in their area of interest.

Guarini Fellowship applicants must be in good academic standing. All Fellows will be expected to continue to conduct research, fulfill all program specific responsibilities, and maintain satisfactory progress in their program for the duration of the Fellowship. Please see application for further eligibility requirements.

Fellows will be provided a stipend of $4,000 for the 12 months of the fellowship over their normal stipend, and appointments will be for one-year with the option to apply for a second year. The fellow will be expected to work 8 hours per week. 

Interested applicants should send a letter of interest and resume. See descriptions below. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled. Faculty references and program approval will also be required.



The Guarini International Graduate Mentoring Fellowships were created with the purpose of developing graduate students as exceptional future faculty mentors. Fellowships will be awarded to graduate students who exemplify a deep commitment to fostering the professional development of a diverse cadre of graduate students from different backgrounds. Interested applicants should send a letter of interest and resume to POSITION FILLED.
