SHASS Diversity Predoctoral Fellows
 

Designed to enhance diversity in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS) and to provide the Fellow with additional professional support and mentoring as they enter the field, the SHASS Diversity Predoctoral Fellowships support graduate scholars for a 9-month appointment at MIT. Each Fellow will be affiliated with a department or program in the School.

Fellows are listed by academic year, home university, and affiliated SHASS field.
