Are you interested in pursuing an advanced degree in STEM? If so, please join us on Saturday, October 21, for a GEM GRAD Lab at the University of Maryland, College Park.
GRAD Lab encourages young people of color to consider graduate education in STEM fields and apply for the GEM fellowship. Focusing on the global importance of research and innovation, life-long career benefits, and real world role models, the symposium will help each student envision his or her future as a science and technology leader, successfully apply for a GEM fellowship, and gain entry to a graduate program. This GRAD Lab will also highlight environmental careers, and is hosted by the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC), along with the University of Maryland-College Park’s Clark School of Engineering and College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences.
