Please join us for a GEM GRAD Lab held at University of Tennessee Knoxville on Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM in Knoxville, TN! This GEM GRAD Lab is co-sponsored by University of Knoxville, Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The GRAD Lab is a fun, engaging (and free!) symposium where participants, science and engineering undergraduates, will receive full information on the importance of graduate school and what is needed to successfully gain admittance with financial support.

Speakers will range from current graduate students to University faculty and senior administrators. They are selected from diverse communities and disciplines to present on the following topics:

  • "Why Graduate School"
  • "How to Prepare for Graduate School"
  • "Understanding the GEM Fellowship", and
  • "Voices From the Field: Real Life Research and Internship Experiences"

GRAD Lab encourages young people to consider graduate engineering or science education and applying for the GEM fellowship. Focusing on the global importance of research and innovation, life-long career benefits, and real world role models the symposium will help each student envision his or her future as a technology leader, successfully apply for a GEM fellowship, and gain entry to a graduate program.
