Overview
The mission of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship, including K-12 learning. MIT researchers will look at students across the socioeconomic spectrum to investigate the diverse ways in which the adolescent brain learns. Greater neuroscientific understanding of the mechanics of learning, particularly among members of disadvantaged communities, will help bring about academic, economic, and civic success for all students.

Grants to this Grantee
for MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative's climate change mitigation and sustainability work  
The MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative aims to limit global warming emissions to protect the planet from the worst effects of human-induced climate change, and promote human prosperity and health around the world. One leverage point in reducing emissions is the re-allocation of capital. This work will provide information on financial institution carbon intensity that would be relevant to organizations in the United States; it will inform the following decisions: choice of investment targets for capital, choice of insurance companies for a range of business insurance services, choice of banks, and choice of investment options for employees in 401(k) retirement plans.
