Alumni Mentoring Program

Each fellow will be matched with one environmental professional PhD Duke alumni during their fellowship year. These mentoring relationships will allow students to gain a different perspective on the range of available career opportunities and will give alumni a sustained and important way to re-engage with their alma mater.
