Registering with eGEM creates an account that allows you to work on your application securely, to save draft work, and return later to complete and submit online. After registering, you will receive an e-mail confirmation with information for later use.
After registering, you will be taken to the application form. Answer the questions carefully and accurately and include your resume and unofficial transcript. You will need to have your employment and educational history (and if applicable information on research experiences) handy to complete the questionnaire. If you cannot answer all the required questions, you can save your draft application and return to the application later to complete.
Note on GRE Scores: You are not required to submit your official GRE Score Report by the application deadline. However you are required to answer all of the questions as prompted about the GRE in your eGEM application. If you have taken the GRE you can self report your scores and scan and upload your score report. If selected for the fellowship, GEM will request to have an official GRE score report on file. If you choose to have your official report sent to GEM (not required), our code is 1305 (listed under the state of Indiana).
Remember, GEM applicants are required to apply to at least 3 GEM Member Universities. GEM wants to ensure that you have all necessary requirements to meet all 3 University’s application requirements. Although not required, we strongly recommend that you take the GRE.
GEM waives the requirement to apply to 3 GEM universities only if you are currently ENROLLED and MATRICULATING in a Master/PhD engineering or applied science program at a current GEM member university. To ultimately be confirmed as a GEM Fellow, your current matriculating university MUST provide confirmation of their willingness to sponsor you as a GEM Fellow. If you are selected by a GEM employer sponsor for GEM Fellow support, the university will be notified that confirmation of full sponsorship up to 2 years for MS Fellows and 5 years for PhD Fellows is required to confirm an applicant as a GEM Fellow.
Requires you to submit supplemental material:
Review your application and submit online. At time of application, you will be asked to upload unofficial transcript(s) only. Official transcripts are not required until you are selected, effective August 17, 2012.
If you are selected for a GEM Fellowship, you will be required to submit an official transcript from all universities and colleges attended. This includes a copy of current transcripts reflecting your most recent grades. Grade reports and monitor screen printouts are not acceptable as official transcripts.
If submitting official transcripts please send via postal mail or email to [email protected]:
The National GEM Consortium
1430 Duke Street
Alexandria, VA 22314
Official transcripts are sent directly from the university or institution: Please do not email GEM your transcript.
The GEM Office is responsible for soliciting, screening, and processing applications. Applications received by the submission deadline are screened and certified for eligibility. Those approved for fellowship consideration are forwarded to the GEM Selection Committee. Applications and application materials received after the submission date are not eligible for consideration. Students are matched to Employer members based on compatibility. The GEM Office notifies all applicants of their award status.
Selected applicants are sent a notification of GEM Employer sponsorship and are asked to complete three forms: Student Acceptance Agreement, Code of Conduct, and University Support Confirmation Agreement. The Student Acceptance Agreement is a contract between GEM and the student that specifies the Fellow will pursue and complete their degree under the terms and conditions as outlined in this Agreement. The applicant becomes a GEM Fellow once all forms are signed and submitted to the GEM National Office along with an OFFICIAL transcript from their current or last university attended.
GEM Consortium Members place applicants not selected on a list for possible later selection. All GEM Consortium Members receive lists of certified applicants not selected initially for GEM Fellowship awards. These applicants may be contacted directly by GEM Consortium Members for a future GEM Fellowship, to be named a GEM University or Associate Fellow, or possibly other educational or employment opportunities.
GEM Fellowship awards are only valid at GEM Member Universities, and each GEM University exercises its own admission requirements and standards which are independent of the GEM Fellowship requirements and standards. Applicants who are seniors or who have baccalaureate degrees must apply for graduate admission to GEM Universities at the same time they submit their application materials to the GEM Office.
The MS Engineering Fellowship requires a student to pursue a master’s degree in the same or related discipline in which they complete their undergraduate degree. Minor variations are permitted if specified on the fellowship application and approved by the GEM Employer Member; however, the length and level of funding associated with the award remains the same. Note, if a change in major requires a lengthier academic program to satisfy deficiencies or prerequisites, this is not a sufficient condition or justification for extending a fellow’s funding or granting a waiver of summer internship requirements.
Knowingly providing false information may result in termination of the GEM fellowship.
