The Martin Family Society of Fellows for Sustainability, established at MIT in 1996 through the generous support of the Martin Family Foundation, fosters graduate level research, education, and collaboration in sustainability. The Society supports and connects MIT's top graduate students in environmental studies, and fosters opportunities for multi-disciplinary cooperation in both the short- and long-term.
Martin Fellows investigate emerging issues in sustainability, exchange information, and participate in occasional seminars and an annual retreat. These activities support Fellows' development of the collaborative capacity that is critical to the successful implementation and application of sustainability scholarship.
The nearly 300 Martin Society "alumni" are leaders in sustainability in government, academia, and industry across the globe.
