The Task Force on the Undergraduate Educational Commons, in collaboration with the Office of the Dean for Undergraduate Education and the d'Arbeloff Fund for Excellence in Education, is calling for preliminary proposals for ambitious projects to enhance the first-year educational experience of undergraduates.
The deadline for grant proposals is Sept. 26. All proposals should be submitted to the d'Arbeloff Grants Committee in care of Peggy Enders, email@example.com.
The d'Arbeloff Fund for Excellence in Education was established through a $10 million grant from Brit d'Arbeloff (S.M. '61) and Alex d'Arbeloff '49 and focuses on projects that will enhance the experience of MIT's undergraduates.
Dean for Undergraduate Education Robert P. Redwine chairs the d'Arbeloff Grants Committee. For more information, visit web.mit.edu/darbeloff.
