G-Force Mentor Program

The UT Dallas G-Force Mentor Program is a “near-peer” student mentoring program that serves underrepresented students at 14 high schools in North Texas. UT Dallas students serve as mentors to promote higher education to high school juniors and seniors at each school. The mentors provide mentees hands-on support completing admissions and financial aid applications, searching for scholarships, and selecting a college. The mentors also work closely with their high school site supervisor to support college initiatives at their school.

The program is funded by a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Work Study Mentorship Program.
