Graduate Bridge Program
The Graduate Bridge Program (Bridge) is designed to support incoming underrepresented and diverse graduate students. By fostering an instant peer network, we help support our BRIDGE cohort while they are transitioning to Purdue University Graduate School. This six-week virtual program offers a series of workshops to help students develop skills and knowledge for their academic and research success. The series of workshops will include professional and research development activities. The overall Bridge Program experience will consist of academic research, career development, professional writing and presentation, and social component to help prepare graduate students for the upcoming academic year.
Summer 2021 Program Dates: June 28, 2021 to August 6, 2021
Due to the Global Pandemic, BRIDGE will be virtual this year.
