Michigan Tech is a member of GEM
GEM is a unique and powerful national network of universities and employers (corporations and national laboratories). This program and the connections it fosters provides financial support, learning opportunities and skills for highly qualified students from underrepresented groups to succeed in STEM graduate programs.
