Geoscience Education & Mentorship Support (GEMS) Program

GEMS provides mentorship support for undergraduate and early-stage graduate students in the geosciences. We believe that all students wishing to pursue an advanced degree should have access to resources and support.

In order to address existing mentorship gaps, particularly for students from historically excluded groups in the geosciences and academia, we match students with faculty, postdoctoral, and graduate student mentors. In addition, we hope to provide materials, webinars, and Q&A sessions on how to apply to graduate school.

GEMS aims to increase the accessibility of graduate programs and funding for all students, which we recognize is only one component of a larger effort needed to diversify the geosciences.
