The third cohort of Xerox-MIT Fellows were honored at a dinner co-hosted on Nov. 23, 2009, by Xerox CTO Sophie Vandebroek and MIT Dean of Engineering Subra Suresh.

The fellowship program was established in 2007 by Xerox to support top-tier students in the School of Engineering — especially women and other groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering — who are focused on research in such areas as green technologies, imaging and smart-document technology, nanotechnology and systems design.

The program connects students with Xerox professionals, who serve as mentors during the fellowship year; the students are also invited to spend the summer working at one of Xerox's four research centers worldwide.
