Graduate Resources Advancing Diversity with Maryland Astronomy and Physics (GRAD-MAP) aims to improve the representation of, and climate for, historically marginalized groups in the field of Astronomy and Physics. In doing so, we additionally provide opportunities for graduate students to gain teaching and mentoring experience. Our method centers around undergraduate students at community colleges and minority-serving institutions. We seek to inform these students about careers in physics and astronomy, teach them a variety of research skills, and provide opportunities for students to gain research experience.

We are supported by the Physics and Astronomy departments at the University of Maryland, College Park. GRAD-MAP is funded by the University of Maryland College of Computer, Mathematical, & Natural Sciences and the Departments of Astronomy and Physics, and the NSF CareerPIRE, and AAG programs.
