Martin Fellows for Sustainability

The Martin Family Society of Fellows for Sustainability has been supporting doctoral students from the departments across MIT since 1997.  ESI administers the Society in coordination with the Office of the Dean of Graduate Education and with the guidance of a Governance Committee comprised of faculty from all five schools.  Martin Fellows are selected through a competitive process and awarded two semester of funding.

The 2017-18 call for nominations is now closed: selections will be announced in April.  More information about the Martin Fellowships can be found here:
