Have you considered earning a PhD and becoming a professor? Do you love research, and are you committed to helping to rectify the historical underrepresentation of African-Americans, Latino/as, and American Indians in U.S. colleges and universities and the disparities that result from that underrepresentation? If so, the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) may be for you. MMUF is a program that matches Fellows with faculty mentors and provides programming that demystifies academic careers and prepares Fellows for applying successfully to graduate school. Students are selected in the spring of their sophomore year, participate in an intensive six-week summer session, and remain in the program during their junior and senior years. Much more information on MMUF is available at http://www.mmuf.org.
An information session will be held on Friday, January 29 at 6:00 PM in 403 Fisk. A light supper will be served. If you are interested but cannot attend, please get in touch with the Associate Coordinator, Renée Johnson-Thornton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860 685-3084.
