Diversity: MIT co-sponsors GEM GRAD Lab

September 24, 2011

MIT recently co-sponsored an all-day Getting Ready for Advanced Degrees (GRAD) Lab symposium with The National Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Science and Engineering (GEM) and the Massachusetts Consortium of STEM Programs (MC-STEMP) at The Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA.  This event was designed to inform and motivate students from underrepresented groups in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to understand the importance of a graduate degree. Students learned how to successfully apply to graduate school and funding opportunities. A panel of speakers provided their insights and experiences on graduate school and beyond. More than 60 students from the New England area attended and Dean Ortiz gave the opening plenary presentation.
