Program Description

The UT Dallas College G-Force Program serves students from area high schools who receive college mentoring services. UT Dallas students work 20 hours per week at sites during the academic year and assist mentees with researching colleges, completing admissions applications, planing college visits and applying for financial aid and scholarships. The UT Dallas G-Force Mentors also work closely with their site supervisor to support college initiatives at their school.

The program was created utilizing a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Work Study Mentorship Program.
