APS Bridge Program


Bridge Sites

The APS Bridge Program (APS-BP) has selected master's or doctoral granting institutions to receive funding to build programs that prepare students to apply and be accepted into a physics doctoral program. Bridge sites host students (APS Bridge Fellows) who typically would not gain acceptance into a physics doctoral program for a period of 1-2 years after their undergraduate studies, enhancing their academic and research skills before applying to a doctoral program. Affiliate Sites are independent institutions that currently host students recruited from the APS-BP with internal funding. More Information

Partnership Institutions

The APS-BP is developing a national network of doctoral granting institutions where bridge and other students, if admitted, will receive proper mentoring and assistance in making the transition into a doctoral program. These institutions have made a commitment to ensuring these conditions are established, to working with diverse students, and to supporting them as graduate scholars. More Information

Member Institutions

The APS Bridge Program offers free membership to colleges, universities, national labs, non-profits, and educational organizations committed to improving diversity in the physics community. Membership Institutions do not receive direct funding, but receive a number of benefits. More Information
