What is the Carthage Mentoring Program?

Carthage Mentoring program graphic: Sept. 2024-May 2025. The Aspire Program The Carthage Mentoring Program, presented by The Aspire Center, aims to support the professional development of students by pairing them with Carthage alumni mentors. The program runs the entire academic year from September 2024 through May 2025. Interested eligible applicants will complete a short 10-minute interview to find a potential mentor match. Successful matches will be made by considering many factors, including pairing student majors and alumni work experience or industry.

Each confirmed pair will meet for a minimum of one hour per month, either in-person or remotely, and discuss the professional development curriculum topic of that month. Student mentees will be provided optional questions they can ask mentors for each monthly topic. This means students never have to worry about coming up with things to discuss! You can also rest assured that our alumni mentors are excited to engage with students and get the conversation started.


Not only do students gain valuable insight and experience from this program, they can also apply for a scholarship at the end! Upon successful completion of the program and its requirements, students will be able to apply for one (1) of three (3) available scholarships worth $1,000 each.
