The Graduate School is partnering with Dr. Michael Matthews, Principal Investigator and Professor of Chemical Engineering, and the College of Arts and Sciences to increase access and success of underrepresented minority groups in the STEM fields.

The grant will facilitate a network of USC faculty and staff within the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields to recruit prospective graduate students who have been selected as national fellows by The National GEM Consortium.

Founded in 1976, Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering and Science (GEM) provides fellowships to underrepresented minority graduate students. GEM's principal activity is the provision of graduate fellowships at the MS and Ph.D. levels coupled with paid summer internships. GEM also offers programming on the importance of graduate school and tools for access and successful matriculation.
