MISTI GLOBAL SEED FUNDS
MISTI matches hundreds of MIT students with hands-on professional internships and research opportunities around the globe. Projects are tailored to align with the student’s skills and interests and the needs of the host institution. The program is open to all MIT students—both undergraduate and graduate—at no additional cost to the student. MISTI is committed to educating students for their experience abroad through MIT language and culture courses and intensive preparation sessions developed by MISTI staff.
MISTI GSF provides funding for MIT faculty to jump-start international projects. Faculty are encouraged to include MIT students in their projects. The program includes a general fund for projects in any country and several dedicated funds to support collaboration with colleagues in a specific country. Tangible outcomes reported by grantees, including papers published, grants obtained, and new career paths for students, point to seed funds as a practical, cost-effective way to spur international research collaboration from the ground up.
MISTI’s groundbreaking experiential teaching programs enable students to teach STEM subjects and entrepreneurship at high schools and universities across the globe. MISTI’s teaching programs give MIT students the opportunity to learn through teaching: how to synthesize and present what they know, how to work in a team, and how to communicate effectively with peers of a different culture.
“The MISTI Global Seed Funds are the difference between collaborating and not collaborating. It’s a perfect way to establish a connection and get things going.”

Since 2008, the program has awarded $6 million to 304 projects. Winning teams use grant funds to cover international travel, meeting and workshop costs. In addition to the general fund for projects in any country, faculty funds are offered for projects in Brazil, Belgium, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico and Russia.

Foreign Film Night The Edukators (Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei)
Tuesday, April 16 at 7:00pm in 32-155 Discussion with Emily Jones, PhD, Harvard Three young radicals face off against an older man who left behind his ideals years ago in this drama from Austria. Jan (Daniel Brühl) and Peter (Stipe Erceg) are a pair of leftist political activists who have their own ideas of how to strike out in the name of economic justice. Jan and Peter like to break into the homes of the rich, re-arrange their belongings, and leave behind a note crediting ʺthe Edukatorsʺ with the invasion, satisfied that their efforts will teach their victims a lesson.
