An aspect of our programing is working with graduate students. Just as undergraduate students need financial, academic, and social support so do graduate students. EEO works with graduate students and student organizations/programs that assist minority STEM graduate students during the course of their academic journey.
The National GEM Consortium
The National GEM Consortium is a nonprofit organization that partners with universities and corporations to provide financial assistance to ethnic groups that are historically underrepresented in the fields of engineering, physical science, and life science. The Georgia Tech GEM Fellowship program is housed in the Engineering Education Outreach office.
Georgia Tech Univeristy Center of Exemplary Mentoring (GT-UCEM)
This collaboration between Georgia Tech and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation seeks to increase the number of engineering Ph.D. graduates from under-represented populations. GT-UCEM conducts valuable academic and career enrichment activities for all CoE students. In addition, it provides fellowships and professional development funds to outstanding African American, Hispanic and Native American Ph.D. students in the CoE.
Facilitating Academic Careers in Engineering & Science (FACES)
FACES is collaboration between Georgia Tech, Emory University, Morehouse, and Spelman aimed at increasing the number of African-American students seeking doctorates in engineering. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, FACES offers opportunities for undergraduate research (during the academic year and the summer) as well as fellowships and grants to Ph.D. students.
