Mellon-Mays Undergraduate Fellowship


Grinnellians are celebrating the $116,000 renewal of a grant that supports the College’s Mellon-Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) program. This program is the central component of the Mellon Foundation’s efforts to increase diversity in the faculty ranks of institutions of higher learning nationwide by supporting students from groups historically excluded from the academy as they pursue doctoral degrees. The grant renewal helps Grinnell continue to support two MMUF cohorts of five students annually with stipends, travel and research funding, faculty mentoring, and other assistance as they pursue academic careers.
