When preparing to contact the Alumni Mentors in the W&J CCN, we encourage professionally written messages that are grammatically correct. Construct a succinct message with a reference to the W&J mentoring network in the message. Use formal salutations and closings and show appreciation for his/her time and willingness to be a resource for your career growth.
Note: As it is important to make a positive first impression; please keep in mind that Career Services and your faculty advisors will be great resources for reviewing drafts of your communications.
A sample message might be something like:
Dear Dr. Bilsky,
I read your bio in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network and as a current junior majoring in English, I was wondering if you would be willing to speak with me about your experience as a graduate student at Stanford. I am preparing my own graduate school applications and welcome any advice you might have for me.
Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate your willingness to be a resource for W&J students.

Writer, W&J Red & Black
Or an alternative:
Dear Mr. Van Cleve,
As a W&J student majoring in Business Administration, I am thinking about the sales field as a career direction. After reading your career information in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network, I am very interested in learning more about your work in the field. Would you be willing to speak with me about your work as a Sales Director in a technical field? Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

The James Madison Fellowship, a federal program, offers pre-service (as well as in-service) teachers of government and history up to $24,000 to complete a Master’s degree in fields related to the U.S. Constitution. The program has awarded 1200 fellowships since its inception in 1992.
Junior Fellows (those who have not yet taught) have two years to complete full-time graduate studies at any accredited college or university in the country. In the past two decades, fellows have matriculated at nearly 400 colleges and universities around the nation.
After receiving their degree, Junior Fellows are required to teach in a secondary school for at least two years. I am pleased to report, however, that the majority of our Junior Fellows choose to pursue career in teaching. To date, over 2 million secondary students in all 50 states have been taught by James Madison Fellows.
The fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis, but candidates only compete with candidates from within each state – not on a nation-wide basis. Our goal is to award at least one James Madison Fellowship per year per state. Full details of the fellowship as well as applications are available at the Madison Foundation’s website, jamesmadison.gov. Applications are due each year on March 1.
