2011-2012 Xerox-MIT fellows celebrated

Fellowship program was established to support top-tier engineering students — especially women and other groups traditionally underrepresented.

The fifth cohort of Xerox-MIT Fellows were honored at a dinner co-hosted on Nov. 14 by Xerox CTO Sophie Vandebroek and MIT Dean of Engineering Ian Waitz.

The fellowship program was established in 2007 by Xerox to support top-tier students in the School of Engineering — especially women and other groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering — who are focused on research in such areas as cloud and distributed computing, green processes and technologies, and nanotechnology and systems design.

The program connects students with Xerox professionals, who serve as mentors during the fellowship year; the students are also invited to spend the summer working at one of Xerox's five research centers worldwide.
