The mission of the National GEM Consortium is to increase the participation of underrepresented groups (African Americans, American Indians, and Hispanic Americans) at the master's and doctoral levels in engineering and science. The GEM Fellowships include stipends for MS Engineering programs and PhD programs for engineering and science. The GEM Fellowship covers tuition and offers generous living stipends and paid summer internships.
Eligible applicants for the MS Fellowship must be seniors, or graduates from an accredited engineering or computer science program at the time of application. Applicants must also have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8/4.0. Applicants for the PhD program must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0.
