There are a variety of MIT staff who are invested in your success, both in and out of the classroom. If you’re not sure where to begin, don’t worry, you’re not alone. For help with fellowships, please feel free to email laurie [at] mit.edu (Laurie Ward), the Office of Graduate Education grad-fellowships [at] mit.edu ((OGE) Fellowships Team), and for all things finance, Sfs [at] mit.edu (Student Financial Services) (SFS).
