Applications are welcome from current sophomores seriously interested in pursuing a teaching career in higher education. Please view program eligibility before applying.

Application Components

  • Three short essays (guidelines provided below)
  • A student's internal academic record and, if a transfer student, transcripts from any other college or university attended
  • Recommendation letters from 2 professors (not graduate students) who know your academic work (guidelines provided below)

Recommendation Letters

You will need letters of recommendation from two professors. One should come from your proposed MMUF mentor; the other should come from a professor with whom you have taken coursework and/or who can speak about you as a scholar.

We suggest you submit complete drafts of your application essays to your letter writers prior to submitting your application, so they can give you feedback and have sufficient understanding of your project in order to write your letters of recommendation.

Your letter of recommendation writers will need the following forms to complete their part of the application. Please use the forms below to enter your applicant information at the top and then forward the forms via email to your recommender and mentor. The forms can be completed online using Adobe.
