BUMP Mentor Application – 2016-2017


2016-2017 BUMP Mentor Applications will close on Thursday March 31, 2016 at NOON.

Mentors are selected for a 2 semester commitment (fall and spring).

Mentor Eligibility

  • Junior, Senior, or combined degree (Warrington undergrad) business or accounting major
  • Any Transfer Business or Accounting major, whom has been on the UF campus for at least 2 semesters

    • Study Abroad, Internships, and Graduation are exceptions. Please contact the BUMP Advisor if you would like to participate, but cannot fulfill the role both semesters. 

Mentor Mindset

  • Unlike other CCLD Programs or student organizations, the main development and heart of the program occurs as a mentor and mentee pair outside of structured meetings, trainings, and events. Therefore, it is important to be able to effectively manage your time and make your BUMP mentee a priority.
    • Meet with your mentee approx. once per week, but no less than every two weeks.
    • The more you put into this experience, the more you will benefit, learn, and help your mentee grow.
