About G-STEM

The G-STEM office has been developed to work synergistically with different offices and departments on campus to establish formal international research collaborations, and develop a structured mentoring program for STEM majors (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, Dual-Degree Engineering or Environmental Science and Studies) seeking global research experiences. The G-STEM program's goals are to greatly increase the quality and quantity of international research opportunities available to our students, as well as enhance the mentoring process between STEM students and faculty.

Once formally admitted, G-STEM Scholars are

  • Paired with a G-STEM mentor at Spelman College who provides mentorship before, during and after the trip
  • Placed into a research lab or field experience abroad

It is expected that this level of continuous, focused mentoring by faculty will support students in integrating their research experiences abroad into their undergraduate careers, thereby helping them becoming highly competitive candidates for STEM careers and graduate study.
