Founded in 1976, the mission of The National GEM Consortium is to enhance the value of the nation’s human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups at the master’s and doctoral levels in engineering and applied science, thereby matching their specific skills to the specific technical needs of GEM employer members.
The GEM Fellowship was designed to focus on promoting opportunities for underrepresented students to enter industry at graduate level in areas such as research, development and other high level technical careers. It also offers exposure to a number of opportunities in academia.
