The Dalai Lama Center Fellows program supports individuals who are dedicated to extending the reach of science and technology to serve humanity’s greatest needs with sustainable, ethical commitment. Fellows will join multidisciplinary teams of innovative students and faculty united by the mission of The Center.
The Fellows Program is an opportunity for participants to cultivate leadership, policy, and management skills while developing specific projects. Applicants should submit a proposal that describes the nature of their work and how it will further the goal of applying science and technology in an ethical manner with an awareness of global impact. The Center cannot provide financial support to Fellows; all applicants must secure external funding for their work.The Center will provide guidance and will match Fellows with others working in related areas to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration, so that involvement in projects will benefit as large a portion of the MIT Community as possible. Projects include, but are not limited to, the development and deployment of technology to meet a global need, teaching and cultivating ethical values and skills, and building stronger community relationships.
