Graduate Pathways to STEM

Bay Area GPS (Graduate Pathways to STEM) 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.

Bay Area GPS focuses specifically on providing access and preparation to students attending Bay Area, Northern California, and select Southern California universities who can contribute to a diverse student body and build a vibrant and inclusive intellectual community. Applicants must demonstrate a serious commitment to enrolling in a STEM master’s or PhD program.

The mission of Bay Area GPS is to equip diverse, innovative leaders with the access, tools, and skills they need to obtain an advanced engineering and science degree.

The 2019 dates will be announced soon.
