IE Students to Mentor:

UT's Intellectual Entrepreneurship program is collaborating with the Austin Housing Authority, the Media Communications Council and the Texas Diversity Council to provide mentoring and college readiness assistance to middle and high school students.

The program, "It Could Be U," helps students explore fields of interest and develop an education plan. The three-year, $267,000 program, underwritten by the housing authority, features UT graduate students serving as mentors.
