Graduate Bridge Student Scholars

Graduate Bridge program scholars are students interested in pursuing a graduate education in STEM disciplines and who want to further hone their skills during a summer research program. Our Graduate Bridge scholars travel to Purdue from undergraduate institutions across the United States, including the 48 contiguous states, Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico.

The scholars bring with them cultural knowledge and experiences that add to the diversity we strive to promote on the Purdue campus. Colleges and departments are introduced to a diverse student population with great potential for graduate school success.
