The National GEM Consortium is a network and community of corporations, government laboratories, top universities, and top research institutions, including Tufts University, established to equip qualified students from under-represented communities to pursue graduate study in the field of applied science and engineering.
The National GEM Consortium awards fellowships and internships, and organizes conferences with graduate degree fairs and career-planning workshops. The benefits of becoming a GEM fellow are far-reaching, and include access to a large network, financial support, and expert knowledge that will lead to academic and professional success.
As a GEM consortium university member, we are eager to recruit GEM fellows as applicants, and welcome fellows to apply to our graduate programs in Arts, Sciences and Engineering free of charge. GEM fellows should indicate that they are affiliated with the National GEM Consortium by selecting “GEM fellow” on the application information section of our online application and by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with information that verifies that they are currently in the process of applying for or have been awarded a GEM fellowship.
