Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship

The university was recently awarded a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) program by the Mellon Foundation based on a proposal submitted by Professor Nicole Guidotte-Hernandez and Associate Dean Richard Flores.

We are very excited to have the opportunity to bring this prestigious program to our campus. The MMUF supports 10 undergraduates who wish to pursue a PhD in several Mellon-approved fields. The objective of the MMUF is to increase diversity on university and college campuses across the U.S.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Sophomore standing (at least 30 credits)
  • GPA of 3.0 or better
  • Plan to pursue a doctoral degree in one of the Mellon-approved fields
  • A completed application, including a statement of intent to pursue a doctoral degree, three strong letters of recommendation from faculty, transcripts, and resume.

Mellon-Approved fields of study include Area/Cultural/Ethnic/Gender Studies (that would include Asian Studies majors) and Foreign Languages and Literature (which would include Asian Cultures and Language majors)
