Dedicated experts who have a passion for building community.

More than ten years ago, the Minority Graduate Student Network was founded to create a community and a support system for graduate students in the sciences throughout the New York metropolitan area. We have been incredibly fortunate to have had talented graduate students work to establish our presence in the NYC scientific community, execute our events and continue to grow our membership. In order to continue our mission of helping to retain and increase the number of underrepresented minority students pursuing graduate degrees in STEM disciplines, we are actively recruiting to fill vacant Executive Board positions for the 2019 - 2020 academic year.

The leadership skills, experience and contacts gained from these roles will be invaluable to your career.
