Who We Are & What We Do

Technology Class

GradMAP was founded on the belief that STEM careers and educational opportunities should be more accessible to everyone, including Filipinos. We believe that there are many talented and motivated students in the Philippines who’d make wonderful scientists and STEM professionals but are limited by the lack of resources and guidance.

 

We aim to bridge this gap by providing one-on-one mentorship, pairing students with experienced mentors in their respective fields. Mentors provide support, encouragement, and insights into the graduate school application process, as well as help polish application materials. In doing so, we hope to increase the pipeline of Filipino students pursuing graduate studies, and concurrently, build a global community of Filipino scientists to support and celebrate each other.
