MMUF is one of the Mellon Foundation’s “premier programs and the centerpiece of the Foundation’s
long-term effort to help remedy the serious shortage of faculty of color in higher education.” The goal of
the MMUF program is to identify and support students with a demonstrated commitment to diversity
and equity, and who are interested in earning a doctorate in the core fields of arts, humanities and
selected social sciences to become future faculty. The Claremont Colleges MMUF program will select a
new cohort of up to ten sophomores (rising juniors) in Spring 2024, with an annual cohort size of 20
juniors and seniors from across the colleges each year.
