GEM’s fellowship programs span the entire recruitment, retention, and professional development spectrum. GEM’s principal activity is the provision of graduate fellowships at the MS and Ph.D. levels coupled with paid summer internships. GEM is devoted to increasing access and success in engineering and science graduate education and practice.
The objective of this program is to promote the benefits of a master’s degree within industry. GEM Fellows are provided practical engineering summer work experiences through an employer sponsor and a portable academic year fellowship of tuition, fees, and a stipend which may be used at any participating GEM Member University where the GEM Fellow is admitted. The following financial package is for GEM Fellowships beginning Fall 2013 or later (i.e., not retroactive for GEM Fellows who began their GEM Fellowship before Fall 2013).
The objective of the Ph.D. Engineering/Science program is to offer doctoral fellowships to underrepresented minority students who have either completed, are currently enrolled in a master’s in engineering program, or received admittance into a PhD program directly from a bachelor’s degree program. Fellowships may be used at any participating GEM Member University where the GEM Fellow is admitted.
GEM Employers sponsor highly qualified fellowship applicants to matriculate in a STEM graduate program by providing a contribution of $22,500 per student and paid internships.
GEM Universities can name eligible applicants GEM Associate Fellows by providing a minimum of $16,000 in stipend plus full tuition and fees.
Every qualifying, complete GEM Fellowship application receives a review by two judges who represent faculty, industry and partner research experts. This stellar group of judges convenes for two days to evaluate candidates. Sponsoring this meeting gives your institution the benefit of garnering collaborative research opportunities while providing philanthropic support of GEM’s mission.
