The Bridge to the Doctorate program is a nation-wide program with participating universities from coast to coast. The program began in 2003 with Cohort I at OSU and has continued successfully. Each year, BD programs are awarded to eligible participating LSAMP universities. Although each university has different requirements and benefits, they are similar in order to meet NSF goals. Each Fellow is expected to complete the Ph.D. and is given support for up to five years provided that they make satisfactory progress towards the degree. If you have questions regarding positions available, please do not hesitate to contact any BD program across the nation.
