Winthrop University McNair Scholar, Brittany Walker (a May 2013 Wofford College Chemistry graduate), was awarded the GEM Fellowship for graduate studies by The National Consortium for Graduate Degrees for Minorities in Engineering and Science, Inc. (GEM). GEM prepares technical leaders in industry, academia, and government agency careers, by identifying highly qualified scholars with the ability to complete industry internships and a graduate study program of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Walker plans to continue her doctoral studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign while being sponsored by DuPont. The GEM fellowship provides a $16,000 stipend, which encompasses full tuition and fees, as well as a living stipend, and a paid internship with Walker’s sponsoring company, DuPont.
