FastStart Program Endowment
The Penn State Alumni Association’s FastStart program is seeking faculty, staff, and alumni to mentor underrepresented first-year students to ensure their Penn State careers begin with a “fast start.”

The triad-style program matches first-year Penn State students from diverse backgrounds with two mentors—a Penn State graduate and a current faculty or staff member at University Park. This gives the students an on-campus mentor, as well as one who can speak to his or her experiences as a student and the power of the alumni network.
