The APS Bridge Program is developing a coalition of academic institutions that share a commitment to increasing educational opportunities for underrepresented minority physics students.

Becoming a Member Institution

APS Bridge Program membership is free. Institutions that are actively working to improve diversity in the physics community may join. This network of member institutions will share innovative ideas, learn from leaders in the field, and promote awareness of the importance of diversity in physics.

The Bridge Program offers institution membership to colleges and universities as well as national labs, non-profits, and educational organizations that play supporting roles in improving diversity in physics education.

Membership Benefits

To maintain membership, we ask members to annually update their profiles on the APS Bridge website. We also ask members to provide data on the number of minority students graduating from their programs to allow us to advocate nationally on these issues.

Apply for Membership

To apply for membership, please submit the following items:

  1. A completed membership application form.
  2. A letter from your institution’s physics department head or chair sent to BridgeProgram@aps.org that includes the following:
