Today an increasing percentage of underrepresented minorities with advanced degrees in science or engineering were once GEM Fellows. The GEM Alumni are a vital part of the continued success of the GEM Fellowship program. In addition to supporting the Alumni-sponsored Fellowship, many volunteer as GEM Ambassadors at their place of employment and participate as speakers at GEM GRAD Labs, FFP symposiums and informational sessions held around the country. Through sponsorship of GEM Alumni programs, your company or university gain access and direct promotion in front of close to 4,000 GEM Alumni; under-represented individuals who hold a master’s or PhD degree in a STEM field.
GEM will host socials around the country for alumni local to a GRAD Lab to come out to network with each other and to meet GEM staff, Sponsors and University hosts. These events also create a unique opportunity for potential GEM fellows to interact and engage with our GEM alumni about the challenges and triumphs of graduate school. Events sponsors benefit from branding opportunities on event collateral and during the active event.
The GEM Alumni Association meets once annual at the GEM Annual Board Meeting and Conference. Display your institution’s logo on all Alumni conference events and the GEM Alumni website.
Help grow the GEM Alumni Association by sponsoring the development of a comprehensive database of technical minority professionals who hold graduate degrees in STEM.
