The Bridge to the Ph.D. Program is designed to increase the participation of students from underrepresented groups in Ph.D. programs in STEM fields. The Program is an intensive research, coursework, and mentoring experience for post-baccalaureates seeking to strengthen their graduate school applications and to prepare for the transition into Ph.D. programs. Recent bridge alumni have gone on to Ph.D. programs at Columbia University, but also to Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Cornell University, Northwestern University, the University of California-Davis, the University of Chicago, and Weill Cornell Medical College.

The Bridge Program is supported by the National Science Foundation through grants AST/PHY-1539931 and AST-1742716. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
