Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship at Hunter College

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation established the MMUF Program in 1989. Hunter was among the first group of colleges and universities to receive a major grant from that foundation. On the basis of its record of success, the MMUF Program at Hunter College has continued to receive grant renewals on a regular basis. The fundamental objective of MMUF is to address, over time, the problem of underrepresentation in the academy at the level of college and university faculties. This goal can be achieved both by increasing the number of students from underrepresented minority groups (URM) who pursue PhDs and by supporting the pursuit of PhDs by students who may not come from traditional minority groups but have otherwise demonstrated a commitment to the goals of MMUF. The MMUF program is designed to encourage fellows to enter PhD programs that prepare students for professorial careers - See more at: http://www.mmuf.org/about/mission#sthash.AMOQw76b.dpuf The Hunter College experience involves one-on-one mentoring with a faculty member, collaborating with a mentor in research projects and teaching, and curriculum development, attending professional conferences, and having opportunities to study or conduct research either at other universities in the United States or in international settings abroad during the academic year or the summer months. The hope is that such an experience will give Hunter students an enjoyment in a field of study and an advanced working knowledge about graduate programs and the academic profession.
