Overview

The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) Program, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is designed to increase diversity in the faculty ranks of institutions of higher learning. The MMUF provides qualified students with intensive faculty mentoring, term-time financial support for research projects, summer stipends to continue work on research and the possibility of undergraduate loan repayment if a fellow enters a doctoral program in a Mellon-designated field. The committee selects up to five sophomores per year (students must be U.S. citizens). Candidates are chosen through a competitive application process that identifies those who demonstrate academic promise and are committed to the MMUF's goal of reducing underrepresentation of minority groups on academic faculties.

The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program is a rare opportunity for students to develop as researchers and scholars. All students are welcome to apply, and applications are particularly encouraged from African Americans, Latinos and Latinas, Native Americans and other under-represented minorities.
