For MIT Faculty

The Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab at MIT seeks to promote excellence and transformation in education globally.

Leveraging MIT’s resources and faculty expertise, we convene a global community of collaborators to transform education across the world in a self-sustaining way. J-WEL's target populations include 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.


Grant Programs

We encourage faculty to propose innovations and educational research that will impact MIT education, with broad potential for impact in global settings.


J-WEL invites MIT faculty to submit proposals for J-WEL Grants in pK-12 Education Innovation. The 2019 Call for Proposals is now closed. Thank you to all who submitted a proposal.
