Graduate Programs

The National GEM Consortium is a nonprofit organization that partners with universities and corporations to provide financial assistance to ethnic groups that are historically underrepresented in the fields of engineering, physical science, and life science. The Georgia Tech GEM Fellowship program is housed in the Center for Engineering Education and Diversity.

CEED partners with Georgia Tech campus offices and organizations to provide support to current and prospective under-represented minority students in STEM majors.

This program is sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and seeks to increase the number of outstanding engineering Ph.D. graduates from under-represented populations (i.e. African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans).  This program provides three years of support for students who have recently completed the Ph.D. Qualifying/Preliminary exam.
