The MRF application

IS NOW OPEN AS OF 05/08/2022

The MRF application DEADLINE is:

Sunday, June 19, 2022 at midnight Pacific Time.



If you received an email notification that your application has been submitted, we have received it!

If you received an email notification that your recommendation/advisor form was submitted, we have received it!

If your faculty recommenders or advisors have contacted us regarding technical difficulties prior to the deadline,

our team will work them to complete your submission.


Once you have submitted your completed Mistletoe Research Fellowship application,

you may expect to receive decision via email by early August.


Your acceptance is contingent on employment/enrollment/visa verification with your university.

All accepted Mistletoe Research Fellows must attend

two required onboarding events:

MRF Virtual Onboarding Workshop (Online, Sept 16-18, 2022)

MRF In-Person Match Workshop (California TBD, Nov 3-6, 2022)

All sessions for the Virtual Onboarding Workshop are online and limited to a few hours

maximum per day in order to avoid "zoom fatigue."

It is at these onboarding events where you will first connect online to your fellowship cohort in September. At our 

in-person session in November you will further engage with the Momental Community and meet participating

startups in order to match to a team for the MRF Startup Collaboration component of your fellowship.
