  • Action, Innovation & Motivation (AIM) Scholarship

The AIM scholarship will fund and support an MIT Sloan Fellow's social impact project following graduation. Its mission is to promote entrepreneurship and impact innovation to solve some of the world’s most critical development issues. 

    The ideal candidate will be an entrepreneur who wants to test and implement ideas and solutions that are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. The Trust is specifically looking for an action-oriented individual eager to execute on the ground in India for six to nine months. The Scholar will be awarded $10,000 upon arriving in India and $1,000 per month to cover living expenses. The Trust will provide local logistical support and access to a group of industry experts to advise the Scholar during his/her tenure. The application will open on February 16, 2019 and close on March 16, 2019. The five-person selection committee, comprised of MIT Sloan faculty, staff, and a student, will review proposals and make their final decision in early March.
