Thank you for your interest in the Mistletoe Research Fellowship Program!


If you have reached this page it is due to one of the following reasons:


  • Your institution is not yet one of our university partners


  • You are a PhD candidate and your institution is one of our university partners but does not allow PhD candidates to participate, usually due to restrictions on external or extracurricular activities outside the PhD curriculum.


  • You are neither a postdoctoral scholar nor a PhD candidate


  • Your field is not yet included in the research fields we can accommodate in our fellowship program.

As the Mistletoe Research Fellowship grows and evolves, the Momental Foundation hopes to add additional academic fields and university partners. You may opt in to receive updates by scrolling to the bottom of our website and entering your email to receive announcements which may include the additions of these new fields and partners.


Note that at this time, the Momental Foundation does not intend to expand our eligibility categories for the Mistletoe Research Fellowship to include faculty, recent graduates, or PhD students who have not advanced to candidacy.
