The Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (J-WEL) is a new MIT initiative that promotes excellence and transformation in global education through three collaboratives: pre-K-12 (pK-12), Higher Education, and Workplace Learning.

Hazel Sive, a professor of biology and the faculty director of Higher Education at J-WEL, recently announced recipients of fall 2017 J-WEL grants in Higher Education Innovation. They are:

  • Associate Professor Azra Akšamija, Department of Architecture: Culturally Sensitive Design: Art and Innovation in the Refugee Camp
  • Professor W. Craig Carter, Department of Materials Science and Engineering: Improving Academic-Field-Specific Learning through Coding, Visualization, and Computational Thinking: The CodeSeal Project
  • Professor Christoph Paus, Department of Physics: Fundamentals of Experimentation in the Physics Sciences using an Arduino

J-WEL is announcing a call for proposals through spring 2018 J-WEL Education Innovation Grant Program. Grants should be focused on educational innovations for pK-12, Higher Education, and Workplace Learning — generating solutions that may have MIT relevance, as well as the potential for global impact.

For deadlines, the detailed call, proposal form, budget template, and access to additional related resources, please visit the J-WEL Education Innovation Grant Program pages:

Please contact jwel-grants@mit.edu with specific questions about the process or its requirements.
