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.
A limited number of part-time outside readers are being hired to assist with the review of freshman applications for admission to MIT. Supervised by a member of the admissions staff, each outside reader will read, evaluate, and summarize applications in an assigned caseload.
The outside reader is required to attend a series of paid on-campus training sessions to take place in mid/late October.
Intermittent training may be conducted as needed beyond the initial training sessions.
The outside reader will be instructed in our evaluation protocols and be expected to thoughtfully apply them to each assigned file.
This includes carefully evaluating academic records, letters of recommendation, student-written essays, co/extra-curricular commitments and achievements, and interview reports.

The Club of Boston’s 7th annual Science Trivia Challenge on April 17, 2013 was another resounding success. Twenty-four teams - school-age and adult –joined Club volunteers and moderator Professor Walter Lewin for an evening of trivia ranging from bosons to biofuels to broccoli! Each year, the four top-scoring teams enjoyed a meal with MIT Nobel Laureates, luminaries like Jerome Friedman, Robert Horvitz, Wolfgang Ketterle, and Phillip Sharp.
This coming year we add a new twist to our game: regular MIT and science trivia directly to your e-mail inbox! If you joined us in April, keep playing along. If you’re new to the Challenge, join us now! Once a month, MIT-specific and general science trivia questions will be included in the Club newsletter.
