Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF)


Since 2000, Emory's Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program (MMUF) has supported undergraduates who feel called to earn a doctorate, and to teach at the college or university level. Administered by the Department of African American Studies, the MMUF Program also creates opportunities for undergraduates to undertake research projects with Emory faculty members who function as mentors during the two-year period of this fellowship.

In addition to joining a national and international network of emerging scholars, Mellon Fellows receive a stipend throughout the academic year, summer stipends, and the forgiveness of a percentage of undergraduate loans while earning a doctorate in a Mellon field or discipline.

Through the Department of African American Studies, Emory's MMUF Program provides support to under-graduates who feel called to the vocation of teaching, scholarship and service.

For further information about the MMUF Program, students may contact Dr. Dianne Stewart, Coordinator of the MMUF Program, and Dr. Maria Carríon, Co-coordinator of the MMUF Program.
