The University of Rochester has been a member of the National GEM Consortium (GEM) since 2009. GEM is a collaborative effort of top universities and research institutions, corporations, and government laboratories that enables qualified students from underrepresented communities to pursue graduate education in applied science and engineering. 

As GEM Fellows, students participate in internship opportunities and have access to a nationwide community with manifold resources.

The University of Rochester participates with GEM to support PhD students in applied science fields and engineering. GEM fellows who enroll at the University of Rochester attend tuition-free. In addition, GEM Fellows receive a stipend while attending graduate school.
