The Bay Area Graduate Pathways to STEM (GPS) aims to inspire diverse talent to become the next generation of innovative leaders through advanced engineering degrees. GPS will be held in person at UC Berkeley on Saturday, May 7, 2022.

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. GPS also aims to prepare students for graduate school and the application process. GPS promotes graduate school opportunities to underrepresented minorities, first-generation and low-income students at Bay Area, Northern California and select Southern California universities.
