Graduate School Exploratory Fellowship Program


The Mellon Graduate School Exploratory Fellowship (GSEF) is a 5-year program aimed at diversifying the professoriate in the humanities and social sciences. This program works with students who have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and are either first-generation college, low-income, underrepresented, or committed to diversity work who wish to attend graduate school (must be U.S. citizens or have DACA status). Through paid summer research, professional development workshops, one-on-one mentoring, classes, financial assistance, GRE prep, and one-on-one mentoring, students in the program are holistically prepared to apply and enter into graduate school.
