In order to apply for the WUSA or TX Student Mentor (TXSM) Position, you must complete ALL steps below. Applicants who fail to complete or pass one of the below steps will not be considered for the role.

Step 1: Complete essay responses for the Written Application

The application includes two essay questions. We strongly suggest you download the application essay questions 2022-2023 and rubric and complete them in a word processor.
