Adobe is a corporate member of the National GEM Consortium, a network of corporations, government laboratories, and universities that supports and enables students from underrepresented communities to pursue graduate education in STEM fields. GEM members provide the financial support needed for students accepted into the GEM Fellowship Program to earn their master’s or PhD degrees. In addition, companies and government labs commit to providing summer internships to GEM Fellows.
Adobe has sponsored more than 85 GEM Fellows in computer science since joining the consortium in 2012, with a current average of 10 new GEM Fellows supported each year. Fellows who join Adobe as interns are invited to events and activities from professional development to networking to coffee breaks. Beyond enabling educational opportunities and internships for these students, Adobe has also hired GEM Fellows as full-time staff.
Students can learn more about how to apply for GEM fellowships on the National GEM Consortium’s GEM Fellowship Program page.
