The ACS Bridge Program (ACS-BP)

23 February 2021

Application Deadline March 31, 2021.

The ACS Bridge Program (ACS-BP) is open to prospective Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students who meet the eligibility criteria, exhibit academic promise and plan to pursue a doctoral degree in the chemical sciences to broaden participation and diversity in graduate education.

Within the ACS-BP, students will enroll into a one- to two-year Bridge Experience in a post-baccalaureate or transitional master’s program that provides research experience, advanced coursework, mentoring, and coaching to transition into a doctoral program.

The Bridge Experience aims to improve the access to graduate education for all students while also enhancing the culture of this frontier for those underrepresented in the chemical sciences. Successful applicants will receive financial support from the institution where they are accepted.
