Six Princeton Students Join Mellon Mays Fellowship to Diversify Professoriate

May 15th, 2018

 

Six Princeton undergraduates have been named 2018 Mellon Mays fellows, marking the 30th group of Princeton students who have been selected for the prestigious national award aimed at diversifying faculty at colleges and universities. 

Supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program facilitates funding for undergraduate research and graduate school studies to prepare students for professorial careers. The fellowship provides support, community, mentorship and other resources to students from underrepresented backgrounds and/or students who have a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion.

This year’s fellows are Class of 2020 members Kenji Cataldo, Oluwatoyin Edogun, Yousef Elzalabany, Jaylin Lugardo, Matthew Oakland and Rasheeda Saka. Edogun was named a Mellon Residential Associate Fellow with support from Princeton for her fellowship, while the other students were named Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows and will receive funding directly from the Mellon Foundation.
