Based on the post: https://usmlsamp.wordpress.com/2015/11/06/usm-lsamp-students-from-umbc-umcp-umes-take-time-to-learn-about-graduate-school-thinkbigdiversity/

LSAMP students from UMBC, the University of Maryland College Park, and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore came together this fall to learn more about graduate school. The GEM GRAD Lab was sponsored by the NSF PROMISE AGEP program, and facilitated by the National GEM Consortium. Students had a chance to hear four #GEMGRADLab modules:

  1. Why Graduate School
  2. How to Apply
  3. How to Fund
  4. Voices from the Field

The full program can be found here, through our PROMISE partner:
