MIT ReACT is now collaborating with the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) on the MicroMasters program in Data, Economics, and Development Policy (DEDP).
The MIT ReACT DEDP Track
Beginning in June 2018, the ReACT DEDP track will:
- support course fees within the DEDP MicroMasters program for accepted learners,
- provide in-person workshop sessions on innovation and entrepreneurship, and
- connect learners to paid internships.
All refugees who enroll to audit the first two DEDP MicroMasters courses – The Challenges of Global Poverty and Data Analysis for Social Scientists – on edX during the upcoming summer semester, starting on June 5th, are then eligible to apply for ReACT sponsorship. Students who have previously completed these courses might also be eligible.
