For MIT Faculty: Grant Programs

The Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Laboratory (J-WEL) is a recently established initiative with a mission to spark a global renaissance in education for all learners.

Leveraging MIT’s resources and faculty expertise, we will convene a global community of collaborators to transform education across the world in a self-sustaining way.  A guiding focus of J-WEL will be learners in the developing world, populations underserved by education such as women and girls, a growing displaced population that includes refugees, and the knowledge and skills needed by youth for tomorrow’s workforce.

J-WEL encourages MIT faculty to propose educational innovations that will benefit a broad base of learners, including global learners and with clear MIT residential impact.
