Cientifico Latino’s Graduate School Engagement and Community (GSEC) is a yearlong program that seeks to support diverse graduate students as they navigate their first year in graduate school. This program provides access to small mentorship groups, professional development workshops, and community events.   We have had over 250 graduate students enrolled in our program over two years.  This year, GSEC is open to the public!


We are also seeking mentors for GSEC! If you are an advanced graduate student or postdoc, and you are passionate about mentorship and retention of underrepresented STEM trainees in grad school, please consider applying to be a GSEC mentor.


Applications for GSEC 2024 scholar and
mentors are now closed.

For any questions, please contact:

Thank you to our partners!

This work is supported by the Richard Lounsbery Foundation.
