CS Master student awarded a GEM Fellowship
Kellen Dorchen, a Computer Science Master student has been awarded a GEM Fellowship (https://www.gemfellowship.org/) to complete his MS CS degree.
As part of the fellowship, Kellen will receive full tuition and a stipend for his remaining 3 semesters of study at RIT.
He will also work this and next summer in an internship at MITRE.
GEM is a network of corporations, government laboratories, universities, and research institutions.
Their mission is to enhance the value of the nation’s human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups (African Americans, American Indians, and Hispanic Americans) in graduate STEM programs.
RIT is a GEM University Partner and, as such, agrees to support up to two GEM Industry Fellows per year.
His employer sponsor is the MITRE Corporation (https://www.mitre.org).
Kellen started his studies at RIT fall 2020 after he has received his undergraduate degree from Carleton College, Minnesota.
This is great news for Kellen, and for RIT!
