Latin American students pursuing a PhD in Political Science at MIT

About the Program

In 2010, the Luksic Family endowed a Fellowship fund at the MIT Political Science department to sponsor professionals from Latin America pursuing a PhD in political science. The Fellowship was created to support education and research opportunities primarily for MIT students who are citizens of Chile. Providing financial support to graduate students, the Fellowship seeks to foster the development and growth of new leaders in policy and political science.

what scholars say

I will always be very grateful for all the Luksic family’s support to MIT and its students, without which I would not have been able to carry out my doctoral studies in the USA, which have transformed me as a person and as a professional, and opened the door to countless opportunities!”
