The program provides financial support and a developmental structure from the summer preceding a student's junior year until admission to graduate school. In addition, Mellon Mays Fellows receive continuing support from the Mellon Foundation as they advance through graduate school and gain faculty appointments.

City College is one of over forty participating colleges and universities in the U.S. and South Africa. For more information, see: www.mmuf.org.
