MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives

The MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives—better known as MISTI—connects MIT students and faculty with research and innovation around the world. MIT's primary international program, MISTI is a pioneer in applied international studies—a distinctively MIT concept.

For students

Working closely with a network of premier corporations, universities and research institutes, MISTI matches hundreds of MIT students annually with all-expenses-paid internships and research abroad.

For faculty

MISTI Global Seed Funds provide funding for MIT faculty to jump-start international projects and encourage student involvement in faculty-led international research.
