Faculty of Arts Internship Mentorship Initiative (AMI) 

Applications for mentors are closed for the 2023-24 academic year. All past interns are welcome to attend AMI events to share their internship experience!

Applications for mentees are closed for the 2023-24 academic year. You can still attend our upcoming AMI events to network with past interns!

What is AMI?

The Faculty of Arts Internship Mentorship Initiative (AMI) was created in collaboration with the Arts Undergraduate Society (AUS) to form a student network of past and future interns. Students who have completed internships in the past (AMI Mentors) will guide students (AMI Mentees) who want to apply for an internship or internship funding through the Arts Internship Office. The goal is to foster a more in-depth, personalized mentor-mentee relationship between students.  

How does it work? 

Students returning from past AIO or ARIA internships are matched with mentees . Our signup sheet matches mentees with an AMI mentor.

We will match mentors and mentees on a rolling basis and will notify the matching results by email. Once matched, there will be events and opportunities for mentors and mentees to meet. 

Eligibility and Expectations


Students who have successfully completed an internship or received internship awards through the Faculty of Arts Internship Office can sign up for AMI mentors.    

As mentors, students will also receive an official extra-curricular recognition on My Involvement, practice leadership and interpersonal skills through coaching, communication, active listening, and help a fellow Arts student . 

AMI Mentors are expected to: 

  • Communicate with your mentee(s) as soon as you receive their coordinates 
  • Schedule at least one meeting with your mentee(s) 
  • Listen actively and answer their questions  
  • Share your internship insights and be open to give advice 
  • Share your personal experience in a way to evoke mentee(s)’s reflection rather than give specific advice 
  • Don’t hesitate to re-contact your mentee even when you haven’t heard from them in a while 
  • Voluntary participation for AMI events


All McGill Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Arts & Science students are eligible to sign up as a mentees.

How to apply 

Students can apply to be either a mentee or mentor on a rolling basis ( from September to end of October) by filling out the application form found on our website. Matching results will be notified by email.

Applications for the 2023-24 academic year will open September 4 to October 30, 2023
