The Bay Area Graduate Pathways to STEM (GPS) is a program aimed to inspire diverse talent to become the next generation of innovative leaders through advanced engineering degrees.
Bay Area GPS is a one day conference where students attend informative workshops addressing the benefits of pursuing an advanced degree, both MS and PhD, while also preparing for graduate school and the application process. GPS promotes graduate school opportunities to underrepresented minorities (URM), first generation and low-income students at Bay Area, Northern California and select Southern California universities.
