There will be no Global Fellows Program in Spring of 2017 due to a transition with the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education.

About the Program: Develop the skills to launch and manage a successful research career.

Global Fellows is an intensive 5-day program for PhD students jointly offered by MIT and Imperial College London, a science-based institution consistently rated amongst the world's best universities.

Through presentations, interactive work and hands-on activities, 40 participants (20 each from MIT and Imperial) develop the professional skills required to launch and manage a successful research career. Emphasis is placed on creating and sustaining successful international research collaborations.
