The Accounting Mentorship Program (AMP) is a remarkable opportunity for non-UNC Chapel Hill rising second- and third-year undergraduate students to receive personal mentorship in preparation for a successful career in the accounting and finance profession.

AMP includes several components:

  1. Welcome Reception hosted at UNC Chapel Hill. This event will allow you to meet your fellow mentees and mentors before the program starts and will include networking opportunities with Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG) professionals and UNC Master of Accounting (MAC) faculty, staff and students.
  2. Online Workshops delivered by DHG accountants and the UNC MAC team. These sessions will help build knowledge about the profession and will prepare you for graduate school and the business world.
  3. Mentorship by a DHG accounting professional who will meet with you to offer personal guidance and advice as you explore your interest in an accounting career
  4. A capstone event in Chapel Hill where you’ll come together again with your fellow AMP students and participate in workshops, team-building activities, and interview for the coveted DHG Summer Leadership Conference.

Apply for AMP by April 22, 2019.

To be eligible, you need to be either a rising second- or third- year student and have an excellent academic record (minimum 3.3 is preferred, but we will consider all competitive candidates). Those who are underrepresented minorities, first-generation college students, and students who have overcome social or economic hardship are strongly encouraged to apply. You’ll need to provide some basic information and write a brief, 300-word essay letting us know mentorship is important to you. Selected candidates will be invited for an online interview.

We’ll notify applicants of their decision by the beginning of May.  The mentorship activities begin in the fall when you head back to class. We look forward to reviewing your application!

AMP covers all travel and accommodation expenses.
