About the Director's Fellows Program
There are people all over the world with less-than-traditional backgrounds who would be great additions to the Media Lab community. We wanted to create a program to loop them in. Our new Director's Fellows initiative creates a way for these extraordinary individuals to take part in Media Lab research alongside our faculty and students. We're bringing a cohort of characters from a broad range of sectors and geographies to join us in doing collaborative research and to expand our growing global community. The fellows will not only work with the Lab's students and faculty, but also with each other.
The Director's Fellows Program is a part of the MIT Media Lab.
