Description:
The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Bridge to the Doctorate program is funded by the National Science Foundation to increase the number of underrepresented minority students admitted into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduate programs. The program is designed to provide support for these students as they complete their master?s degree coursework and transition into doctoral programs, ultimately increasing the number of underrepresented minority scientists in academic, scientific, and technology professions.

A cohort of twelve students is selected for the Bridge to the Doctorate program from NSF LSAMP programs from across the country. Each Bridge to the Doctorate fellow receives a $32,000 annual stipend for two years, a full tuition scholarship, fee coverage, and health insurance. Fellows are also given specialized academic support in the way of tutoring and writing and exam workshops. Further, fellows are encouraged to attend conferences and participate in community building activities to stimulate their academic and professional development. The Center for Inclusive Education, which manages the program, works closely with the fellows as they complete their first two years of graduate study.
