The BRIDGE program is a multi-institutional research training program (Pitt Bioengineering, Carnegie Mellon Mechanical Engineering, DoD National Laboratories) designed to increase the participation in higher education of individuals historically underrepresented in science and engineering. Barriers often limiting the access of underrepresented students to graduate programs are the lack of hands-on research experience and the lack of information about the professional value of advanced degrees. BRIDGE will dismantle these barriers by providing in-depth research training in topics of relevance to the Department of Defense (DoD): robotics, artificial intelligence, and neural engineering. As a result, the student will not only gain extensive research experience and appreciate the impact of science on real-world applications, but the participant will fulfill enough research hours and courses to earn a Master’s (with a Research Thesis).
BRIDGE training will facilitate the transition between undergraduate and graduate education, which will serve as a critical first step towards pursuing a Ph.D. Students participating in the BRIDGE program will gain the experience, knowledge, and self-confidence to excel at any research university despite previous academic opportunities. Our BRIDGE program will also provide professional development training, including technical writing, oral communication, and ethic, as well as internship experiences with future employers.
Full financial support is provided for qualified applicants including full tuition, monthly stipend, health benefits, travel and supplies.
- A Bachelor of Science degree in a STEM discipline
- Must be U.S. Citizen or permanent resident
- Minimum three letters of recommendation
- Undergraduate transcript
