Application Instructions

Thank you for your interest in becoming a SAW Peer Mentor!

The application process for the current academic year has ended. The next hiring cycle will begin in fall 2014. To learn more about the application process, please read below.

Application Process
You will be required to complete and submit the SAW Peer Mentor Application in its entirety before being considered as a SAW Peer Mentor.

Many prospective SAW mentors find it helpful to preview the application questions prior to beginning the online application. You can view the SAW Peer Mentor Application questions to prepare your answers.

In addition to the application, you are required to seek two faculty members who are willing to support your candidacy and who can speak to your ability to work well with other students. If you were nominated to apply, the nominating faculty member can be one of the references. First year students and transfer students may solicit one recommendation from instructors from previous institutions (including high school) in addition to a Mount Holyoke faculty member.

You may provide your faculty recommenders with the web address to the Faculty Reference Form to allow for an online submission, or you may provide him/her with  a hard copy of the reference form, available at the SAW Center.
