AGEP Summer Bridge Program

The Purdue AGEP Summer Bridge Program offers a unique opportunity for incoming graduate students. AGEP is particularly interested in underrepresented students who have been admitted to one of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics) disciplines. Students must be nominated by their department for the program. Incoming graduate students accepted into the program will conduct research over an eight week period with a faculty mentor and will be mentored by a current AGEP scholar. This summer experience will prepare students for the upcoming year at Purdue University by providing professional development opportunities that will assist them throughout their academic programs as well as an instant peer network to improve retention. In addition to receiving a generous stipend, transportation costs and on campus housing will be covered for the duration of the program.

To apply for the program, complete the application and email it along with a copy of the student’s resume/CV to: agep@purdue.edu.
