The Academic Achievement Program (AAP) enhances the academic and leadership potential of Black, Latine, and Native American students at NYU’s College of Arts and Science. Students interested in being part of AAP can contact us or submit the general membership form throughout the year. All NYU students may become a member, regardless of college or school.
AAP Mentorship Program Application
FALL SEMESTER ONLY: Are you a CAS, Stern, Gallatin, or Steinhardt first year student? Have you ever wondered about how you were going to meet the academic demands of college or find your community?
If this sounds like you, then you should apply to the AAP Mentorship Program!
All incoming College of Arts and Science, Stern School of Business, Gallatin School of Individuated Studies, or Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development first-year students accepted into AAP have the opportunity to be paired with an upper-class mentor. Mentors have a GPA of 3.0 or above and provide guidance around academics and student life.
They do this in a variety of ways including:
Regular check-ins and outings
Updates about different academic events put together by AAP, like our regular Study Nights in Bobst and various informative workshops throughout the year.
In person outings with mentees twice a semester (e.g., example outings have included the High Line, Ice Cream, etc.)
End of the semester dinner with mentors and mentees
