APS Bridge Program

Partnership Sites

Once a student completes the preparation at a bridge site, they will need to find an appropriate graduate program for their PhD studies. The APS Bridge Program (APS-BP) is developing a national network of Partnership Institutions, which are 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 will have made a commitment to ensuring these conditions are established, to working with diverse students, and to supporting them as graduate scholars.

The next deadline to apply to become a Partnership Site is March 2, 2015.
