GEM provides a large network, financial support and expert knowledge to help ensure student success in competitive academic and professional environments. The mission of The National GEM Consortium is to enhance the value of the nation’s human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) at the master’s and doctoral levels in engineering and science.

Since 1974, The Spencer T. and Ann W. Olin Fellowship for Women in Graduate Study has made it possible for women of exceptional promise to become leaders in society. From a group of seven, the Olin Fellowship Network has grown to encompass more than 400 women — the women supported by the Olin Fellowship are citizen scholars, committed to the betterment of humanity.
