Alumni Mentor Program

Are you interested in being mentored by a member of the Monash Alumni?

The MPA and Alumni team are offering 10 high achieving postgraduate students the opportunity to be mentored by Monash Alumni. The program is based on the Sir John Monash Mentoring Program.

The program will provide select PG students in the final stages of their Postgraduate Degree with a personal and professional development opportunity, by pairing them with an experienced mentor.

Mentors are sourced according to student’s academic, career, or personal goals and can be an experienced member of the Monash alumni community, a current senior Monash student, or a current Monash staff member.


The mentoring relationship runs from April to October and is a great opportunity for mentees to receive support in study and career planning, networking insights and developing leadership skills. Mentors have the opportunity to use their knowledge and experience to help their mentee to make the most of their personal and professional potential.

The program features a number of skills-based workshops and a completion ceremony, all of which are designed to complement the practical mentoring experience.

On completion of the program, mentees will have had the opportunity to develop:

  • A sense of belonging with the Monash University community
  • leadership and employability skills
  • Clearer understanding of your values, strengths and areas for improvement
  • Greater insight into your career direction.
