Giving

Gifts from alumni and friends provide the vital fuel for EAPS education and research. Graduate students power our research! You can support a graduate student by making a gift to a fellowship fund. Gifts to the EAPS Discretionary Fund are also critical as they can be used to meet all student or faculty needs. Every single gift to EAPS makes a difference!

Priorities include fellowships and discretionary support:

  • EAPS Discretionary Fund (2635100) provides the most flexible support for students and faculty e.g. to seed new research, purchase equipment, cover student travel to conferences etc.
     
  • EAPS Graduate Student Support Fund (3857220) provides expendable funding for EAPS graduate students of any discipline.
     
  • Fellowships support EAPS graduate students via a named fund:
  • Sven Treitel ’53 Graduate Student Support Fund (3312160)
  • Theodore Madden ’49 Fellowship Fund (3305800)
  • M. Nafi Toksöz Fellowship Fund (3311750)
  • James L. Elliot Graduate Student Support Fund (3297565)

Urgent Need

MIT has an extraordinary, time-limited opportunity to play a central role in this historical scientific initiative to discover habitats and signs of life outside of our solar system. Our goal is to raise at least $1,000,000 to build one new SPECULOOS (1-meter) telescope to be installed in Tenerife, Spain by 2018, and to help with operating costs, graduate research assistants and travel. We have potential gifts in the pipeline totaling $700,000 so far! Will you help us find more exoplanets around ultra cool stars like TRAPPIST-1? To accelerate this exoplanet research and bring MIT into the SPECULOOS consortium, please consider a gift to the SPECULOOS project! Call Angela Ellis at 617-253-5796 or email aellis@mit.edu for information.
