Eman2 Posted April 17, 2020 Share Posted April 17, 2020 I'm aware of several fellowships that say their mission is to "provide opportunity to underrepresented groups in STEM" or promote diversity or otherwise state in their mission statements that they hope to provide more opportunities for minority groups to attend grad school. I'm thinking specifically of GEM and ford foundation but there are probably others. NPSC say this in their mission statement as well. As a person from an over-represented demographic in STEM fields, I was wondering if it is worth applying to these fellowships at all? Obviously, it is good that there are programs that exist to promote diversity in STEM and I hope I don't come off as being critical of this idea, I'm just wondering for my own planning purposes whether these would be worth my time.
