Getting Ready for Advanced Degrees (GRAD) Lab

GEM_artwork

GRAD Lab is GEM’s first programmatic offering for undergraduates! Launched at the 30th Anniversary Conference in June 2006 to outstanding participant reviews, GRAD Lab offers underrepresented students exposure to the benefits of research and technology careers in a highly interactive one-day event.

Speakers may range from current graduate students to senior managers to faculty and senior administrators. They are selected from diverse communities and disciplines to present on the following topics:

  • “Why Graduate School”
  • “How to Prepare for Graduate School”
  • “Understanding the GEM Fellowship”, and
  • “Voices From the Field: Real Life Research and Internship Experiences”

GRAD Lab encourages young people of color to consider graduate engineering or science education and applying for the GEM fellowship. Focusing on the global importance of research and innovation, life-long career benefits, and real world role models the symposium will help each student envision his or her future as a technology leader, successfully apply for a GEM fellowship, and gain entry to a graduate program. GRAD Lab is GEM’s portable and scalable solution for developing diverse technical talent with advanced degrees.
