Materials Research Society
The Materials Research Society (MRS), a founding member of the IGEN Project, is collaborating with programs developed by IGEN Alliance organizations and new initiatives developed by the IGEN Alliance which aims to increase the participation of Underrepresented Racial and Ethnic Minorities (UREM) in graduate studies, including the field of materials science and engineering.
The Materials Research Society (MRS), is a growing, vibrant member-driven organization of over 15,500 individuals from over 90 countries around the world—from the richest of nations to developing countries.
MRS is proud to be a part of the Inclusive Graduate Education Network (IGEN) Alliance, collaborating with programs developed by IGEN Alliance organizations and new initiatives developed by the IGEN Alliance striving to increase the number of PhD's awarded to UREM students.
These programs include sharing of best practices for inclusive graduate education to faculty and administrators, as well as UREM student-focused programs enabling student access to:
- A professional academic support and faculty network that is committed to increasing diversity in graduate education
- Invaluable research experiences, professional development and mentoring opportunities, and the possibility to attend workshops and conferences
- Connections to a network of multi- and inter-disciplinary program peers with similar or shared experiences
