The Matched Advising Program for Sophomores pairs second-year students with junior and senior mentors for one-on-one and group-advising support related to concentration declaration, research opportunities, internships, "sophomore slump," and general academic counseling.
In addition to one-on-one peer advising, MAPS organizes group events and panel presentations geared toward sophomores, as well as focus groups that provide a forum for MAPS participants to discuss the opportunities and challenges unique to the sophomore year at Brown.
Applications for 2016-2017 will open at the end of August! Mentee applications are available here and will be due in mid-September. Mentor applications are available here and will be due at the end of September.

Funding for MAPS is made possible by a gift to the Engaged Life Partnership Endowment from the Island Fund of the New York Community Trust.
Note: Sophomores must declare concentrations by April 1.
