The primary objective
of the Fund is to grow a significant resource for the Research Laboratory
of Electronics (RLE)
at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that will be
used to strengthen the developing careers of junior faculty.
All resources raised will be placed in perpetual MIT endowment.
All income from the endowment will be used to provide support for junior faculty.
By supporting both junior faculty career development and graduate
education, the Fund seeks to honor the memory of Professor Jonathan
Allen, the sixth Director of RLE, and to continue his important
work. During his career, Professor Allen labored tirelessly to nurture
the development of MIT’s students and faculty.The Fund celebrates
