Applying for our Match Program


Our match program is one of the many added benefits of being a member of NaviGators. By filling out our matching application, we will pair American mentors with an international mentee based on common interests and similarities. Mentors will serve as a friend and guide to Gainesville. They will help show their "NaviGatee" around campus, introduce them to new places, and be a resource for them while they are studying abroad.

The match program is optional, but we highly encourage active and involved members to apply!

If you are an incoming international student who is staying in Gainesville for a semester or a year-long program, click here for the international application.

If you are long-term student who has lived in the United States longer than a year, click here for the American application.
