Delaware Bridge Program
This two-year, post-baccalaureate fellowship program is designed to provide students from underrepresented groups (first-generation college students, students from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, underrepresented minorities) with intensive training in data science and applying it to studying the brain and behavior. Along with graduate-level coursework, BRIDGE scholars will engage in mentored research and professional development from multiple mentors at our university. Our goal is to provide students with the experience necessary to be competitive for graduate school. After completing the program, all BRIDGE scholars will receive a certificate in Data Science and Psychology from the University of Delaware.
We are looking for applicants who will be competitive for graduate school but may not yet have competitive applications for graduate school. All applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents and have a bachelor's degree upon starting the program. We strongly encourage applications from students who have faced significant challenges to apply.
Thanks to generous support from the National Science Foundation and the University of Delaware, all BRIDGE scholars will receive full financial support during the program. Please see their webpage for more information about the program, admissions, coursework, research, and career guidance & mentorship. There are other similar BRIDGE programs at the following institutions:
