MSRP seeking alumni to share their experiences and offer academic/career advice.

Each year, the MIT Summer Research Program (MSRP) brings around 40 talented undergraduates from diverse backgrounds to the Institute for nine weeks to conduct research under the guidance of MIT faculty, attend academic and professional development seminars, and participate in social and cultural activities.

MSRP began in 1986 as an institutional effort to increase participation by underrepresented graduate engineering and science programs in the US, and has a mission of promoting the value of graduate education; improving the research enterprise through increased diversity; and preparing and recruiting the best and brightest for graduate education at MIT.

MSRP would like to connect our summer students to MIT alumni who could share their experiences and offer academic and career advice. If you are an MIT alumna/alumnus and are open to being contacted by MSRP participants during the summer, please get in touch! You can reach us at msrp@mit.edu.

MITCOB Scholarship Fund

The MIT Club of Boston Endowed Scholarship Fund was established on December 2, 1985 by an initial gift of the MIT Club of Boston on November 5, 1985.

The Fund shall be held as an endowment and additions to the Fund may be made at any time by the Club or members.  The annual net income of the Fund will be applied to undergraduate financial aid, except that first preference shall be given to undergraduate students who are club member relatives and second preference to Greater Boston residents, in accordance with the student financial aid policies of the Institute.

In establishing the Fund, the MIT Club of Boston recognized the importance of endowed scholarships to support the Institute’s commitment to providing need-based financial aid to undergraduate students.
