About the Program

The Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Fellowship Program is committed to engaging students from underrepresented populations in graduate study within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields of study in the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) or College of Engineering & Computing (CEC).

Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) fellows are committed, mindful learners who are actively engaged in the process to become leaders within the scientific community at the national and global level.

The BD program is awarded by the National Science Foundation Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program, which assists universities and colleges in diversifying the STEM workforce through the recruitment and development of highly competitive students from groups historically underrepresented in STEM disciplines: African-Americans, Alaska Natives, American Indians, Hispanic Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders.

The goal of the LSAMP BD activity is to increase the quantity and quality of STEM graduate students from underrepresented populations, with emphasis on Ph.D. matriculation and completion.

This fellowship is designed to establish a bridge to the terminal degree — the PhD — by providing 12 underrepresented minority science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) doctoral students with:

  • Tuition and fees paid and enrollment in a health insurance benefit program
  • Student stipends of $34,000 annually for two years
  • Individualized faculty mentoring and coaching
  • Participation in professional conferences and meetings
