National Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Minorities Science – November 15, 2010


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.

Ph.D. Science Fellowship Program

The goal of this program is to increase the number of minority students who pursue doctoral degrees in the natural science disciplines — chemistry, physics, earth sciences, mathematics, biological sciences, and computer science. Applicants to this program are accepted as early as their junior undergraduate year, as well as candidates currently enrolled in a Master’s of Engineering program and working professionals. Fellowships offered through this program are portable and may be used at any participating GEM Member University where the GEM Fellow is admitted.

Ph.D. Engineering/Science Fellows receive:

  • $14,000 stipend in year 1 of the PhD program
  • GEM Member University support years 2-5, equivalent to other funded doctorate students in the department
  • a minimum of one paid summer internship with a GEM Employer Member
  • waived tuition and fees at a GEM University
