The GEM GRAD Lab (Get Ready for Advanced Degrees) is a free event sponsored by the Massachusetts Consortium of S.T.E.M. Programs, designed to inform students from underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) about the importance of pursuing an advanced degree, how to apply for graduate school and prepare a competitive application, and graduate school funding opportunities. All S.T.E.M. undergraduates (particularly juniors and seniors) and masters students considering pursuing a PhD are encouraged to attend. Register for this valuable opportunity by clicking here.
