Lunch and Lab with a Grad Mentoring Program

The Lunch & Lab with a Graduate Student Mentoring Program gives undergraduate students an opportunity to learn about graduate life and the application process from a current graduate student – and get a free lunch and possibly a lab tour in the process.  Students are matched based on preferences.  Mentors are provided with Munchie Money to pay for a meal at a Union eatery.  The program has two rounds each year, from September-November and January-March. Undergrad registration is limited. First-come, first-served.

Registration forms

  • Graduate students: Register in August for the fall program and in December for the winter program.
  • Undergraduate students: Register September-November for the fall program and January-March for the winter program.
Both mentors and mentees should take the online survey following their lunch.  For more information, email
