The Bridges Program is a great opportunity for Palomar College minority students majoring in science.
- From one of the following underrepresented groups: African-American, Hispanic, Central and South American, other Hispanic, and American Indian/Alaskan (but the program is not restricted to these groups).
- Those interested in majoring in a scientific discipline.
- Those who have demonstrated the ability to be successful in science courses, and have the potential for graduate studies. GPA is less important than potential.
- Those who expect to transfer in the next two years.
- U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents.
- Financial support ($4500.00 stipend per year).
- Undergraduate research opportunities at CSUSM, where Bridges students get paid (in addition to the annual stipend) to work in research labs at CSUSM.
- Comprehensive academic and career advising, peer tutoring, and more.
How to apply:
- Contact Jim Gilardi (firstname.lastname@example.org; 760-744-1150 x2823).
- The only two things candidates need to turn in are a completed Bridges application (available at http://www2.palomar.edu/stem/Bridges.htm) and an unofficial copy of their transcripts (which can printed for free from eServices).
