MMUF Fellows at Haverford College are part of a national, concentric network of scholars at well over 40 of the top universities and colleges throughout the United States. Fellows meet regularly on Haverford’s campus, and over the course of the year with Fellows at neighboring schools, in particular Bryn Mawr College and Swarthmore College, as well as with their cohort of Fellows at universities both regionally, in particular Penn and Princeton, and nationally.
The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program was designed as part of a long–term commitment by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help remedy, and eventually eradicate, the serious shortage of faculty of color in higher education. Through the comprehensive mentoring and financial support which the MMUF Program provides to selected Fellows, starting at the end of their sophomore year, the Program seeks to provide the requisites for a successful preparation for training for, and entering the professoriate.
