MMUF Platform v2

MMUF is an AWS cloud application with a Vue/Vuetify frontend and NodeJS Serverless backend.

The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship is the centerpiece of the Mellon Foundation’s initiatives to increase diversity in the faculty ranks of institutions of higher learning.

Northwestern sophomores considering graduate study toward a PhD in one of the Mellon designated fields can log in and create an account through Northwestern SSO and submit an application. Students choose a reference when applying who are then notified via email and receive a magic login link to upload a referral letter through the platform. Applications are assigned committee reviewers who submit reviews and comments on each student’s application. At the end of the process a handful of students are selected as new MMUF fellows. The v2 platform also features a dashboard that allows an admin to view/edit all application, user and historical data and fully manage the platform.
