Message from the Coordinator

The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) Program is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and is one of the most distinguished national/international honors programs with a seventeen-year history at Emory University. Its fundamental objective is to increase the number of underrepresented minority students (and others with a demonstrated commitment to eradicating racial disparities) who will pursue a PhD degree in Mellon-approved fields in the arts and sciences. The Program seeks to reduce over time the serious under-representation of individuals from certain minority groups on the faculties of American and South African colleges and universities, as well as to address the attendant educational consequences of these disparities. The MMUF Program aims to achieve its mission by identifying and supporting students of great promise and helping them to become scholars of the highest distinction.
