Rosalind McCullough, Brandon Fields, and Brittney Murray may have taken three completely different paths to get to The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), but there's one thing they all have in common: they are all GEM Fellows. "UAH has been a member of the National GEM Consortium for several years now, but Rosalind, Brandon, and Brittney are the first GEM Fellows we've been matched with since joining," says Dr. David Berkowitz, dean of Graduate School. "Needless to say, competition for these high-achieving students is fierce! They have a bright future ahead of them, and we're proud to be a part of helping them get there." Founded in 1976, the National GEM Consortium is a network of universities, corporations, government labs, and research institutions focused on helping underrepresented students gain access to a graduate education in the science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) fields. Those who apply to and are accepted as GEM Fellows receive a living stipend, full tuition and fees provided by a GEM university member, and paid summer internships with a GEM employer member.
