The Bridge to the Doctorate (BTD) Fellowship Program funded by the National
Science Foundation is committed to engaging students from underrepresented
populations (African American, Native American and Latino) in graduate study
within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields of study.
The BTD Fellowship program encourages students' interest in graduate study
by demystifying the graduate admissions process and removing the financial
barriers associated with continued study. Moreover, the program broadens
perspective among faculty and institutional stakeholders regarding the
successful candidate for graduate study by evaluating prospective fellowship
applicants on the basis of their record of achievements as well as their
professional and research experiences, motivation for advanced study, and
connection to the field of study.
Bridge to the Doctorate fellows are committed, mindful learners who are
actively engaged in the process to become leaders within the scientific
community at the national and global level.
The BTD is administered by the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority
Participation (LSAMP). Please contact Marisol Rodriguez Mergenthal at firstname.lastname@example.org
