Mellon-Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF)

The Mellon Foundation's original purpose for establishing the MMUF Program has been to rectify the problem of the under-representation of Blacks, Latinos, and Native Americans in the faculties of this country's colleges and universities. Involvement in the program means one-on-one mentoring with a Hunter 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 students an enjoyment in a field of study and an advanced working knowledge about graduate programs and the academic profession, all of which will encourage them to pursue and obtain a Ph.D and enter one of this nation's colleges or universities as faculty members.
