What is GEM?
The mission of The National GEM Consortium is to enhance the value of the nation's human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups (African Americans, American Indians, and Hispanic Americans) at the master's and doctoral levels in engineering and science.
Through collaborative relationships between universities and industry, GEM's program provide graduate student fellows with academic and internship experience to best prepare students for careers in engineering and science.
GEM's program activities go beyond financial support by engendering student success in academic and professional environments. GEM has a solid success record in implementing effective programs to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation of minority students.
