Mellon Minority Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) Program

The fundamental objective of MMUF (https://home.vpul.upenn.edu/mmuf-home/) is to increase the number of minority students, and others with a demonstrated commitment to eradicating racial disparities, who will pursue Ph.D.s in core fields in the arts and sciences. The program aims to reduce over time the serious underrepresentation on the faculties of individuals from certain minority groups, as well as to address the attendant educational consequences of these disparities.
