The Michigan Association of Psychological Scholars was created in 2005 in order to offer a new form of guidance and support to undergraduates in the Psychology department.  MAPS is a mentoring program that pairs graduate student mentors with one or two undergraduate mentees; mentoring matches are made based on similarities in interests, demographic criteria such as race and sexual orientation (at the request of the mentee), and the undergraduate’s perceived need for mentoring and guidance.  In the past two years, MAPS has experienced great success and a rapidly expanding membership: this fall, 41 graduate mentors and 62 undergraduate mentees were selected for the program.  The program also offers a variety of free events throughout the semester, which range from panel discussions and informational presentations to social events that give mentors and mentees a chance to unwind during the semester.
