Building a Diverse Faculty Future
Through the Fellows Program, the ACM seeks to recruit and support a broadly diverse faculty who will contribute to academic excellence, diversity of viewpoints and experiences, and relevance in a global society. One of the best ways to know a career path is for you is to try it. ACM offers two programs for historically underrepresented ACM undergraduates to learn about graduate school, research, and understand the life of a faculty member by partnering with Big Ten Academic Alliance institutions.
The Graduate School Exploration Fellowship (GSEF) funds fellowships that provide undergraduates at ACM colleges with a robust set of mentoring, career development, and experiential research opportunities beginning in the summer between their junior and senior year.
The Graduate School Exploration (GRADx) program provides students from underrepresented backgrounds an immersive opportunity to learn about graduate study. GRADx is a year-long program that consists of two forums hosted at a partner Big Ten Academic Alliance campus.
