Our mission is to make sure all students thrive academically at Williams and beyond through opportunities and programs that work to eradicate racial and socio-economic disparities in higher education.
The Office of Special Academic Programs (OSAP) administers the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF), the Allison Davis Research Fellowship (ADRF), and the Summer Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) programs. Additionally, we work with the Summer Science Program, the C3 Undergraduate Fellowship, and other diversity initiatives at Williams or available to Williams students. OSAP is part of the Office of Strategic Planning and Institutional Diversity. Together, this unit seeks to both transform the academy and strengthen the College’s commitment to inclusion by ensuring that diversity initiatives are advanced and celebrated.
