Happy Summer to the MMUF Community!
The MMUF program's support for fellows continues beyond graduate school into their postdoctoral and faculty careers. The Social Science Research Council and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, under grants awarded by the Mellon Foundation, offer two major events designed to support Mellon PhDs as they navigate the milestones of their faculty careers: the PhD Retreat and the Junior Faculty Career Enhancement Fellowship.
In addition, fellows who complete the PhD in eligible fields may apply to receive a final payment of $5,000 to be used toward payment of their undergraduate or graduate school loans. Fellows who wish to request this final payment should contact the MMUF coordinator their undergraduate institution.
