Academic Fellows Program

One of the great initiatives happening on campus to support undergraduate international students is the Academic Fellows Program through the Office for Undergraduate Education.

The Academic Fellows Program provides student mentors to first-year and transfer international students. Mentors contact entering international students after their admission to Emory to answer questions and direct them to academic and other campus resources. Each mentoring group meets four or more times per semester, often during strategic times in the semester, such as before midterms and pre-registration periods. The informal nature of the group meetings allows opportunities to make the acquaintance of other students, share experiences, and socialize. Mentors are not advisors, but provide links to the wide array of resources on campus and also help international students understand the culture of Emory College.

For more information, application, and important dates, visit the Office of Undergraduate Education website.

Please email the director of the program, Frank Gaertner, at with any questions.
