GEM Consortium adds to list of employer members

GEM Consortium and Cisco to provide funding opportunities for post-graduate under-represented students in STEM fields

03/10/2011


The National GEM Consortium announced today that it is adding Cisco to its prestigious list of Employer Members. Cisco plans to provide fellowships for students from under-represented populations seeking graduate degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

“We are delighted to add Cisco to our roster of Employer Members,” said Michele Lezama, executive director, National GEM Consortium. “Cisco’s support allows GEM to continue its mission of addressing the critical shortfall of talent in the STEM fields.”

“Cisco is pleased to collaborate with GEM to foster the development of STEM students,” said Dee Cosetto, director of University Relations, Cisco , Inc. “We look forward to welcoming the first class of interns this summer.”

GEM’s partnerships with 47 corporations and more than 100 universities enable it to offer paid internships and full tuition assistance to exemplary students pursuing STEM-related graduate degrees. GEM has helped graduate nearly 3,000 technical professionals since its founding in 1976, including 200 with doctorates in science and engineering.

By assisting students in obtaining Master’s degrees and Ph.D.s, GEM has had a beneficial and relatively swift impact on corporate America. GEM’s diverse group of graduates helps corporations and industries fill key STEM-related positions in what has otherwise been an ever-shrinking talent pool.

GEM is the only privately funded organization that is dedicated to helping students obtain Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in the STEM fields.
