The Bridge to the Ph.D. Program in STEM is designed to increase the participation of students from underrepresented groups in Ph.D. programs in STEM disciplines. The Bridge Program is an intensive research, academic, 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.

Celebrating the Life of Shane Diego Ernesto Colombo
Recently, the community of Columbia University was disheartened to learn that Shane Colombo (Cohort 9) was tragically taken away from us. Sadly, Shane was an innocent victim of gang-related gunfire while waiting for a bus in Chicago, Illinois. After completing the Bridge Program to the Ph.D. Program in 2018, Shane was to begin his Ph.D. studies in the Department of Psychology at Northwestern University. Shane will be remembered as being a passionate, kind, intelligent, patient, and loving person. He will be greatly missed by us all.
