The Bridge to the Doctorate Fellowship (BD) Minimize    

Senior-level LSAMP alliances are eligible for Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) support. BD funding provides eligible students with financial support for two years of graduate study. The UT System LSAMP program is very proud to have been selected as one of the first Alliances to receive the Bridge to the Doctorate grant. The program has given us the opportunity to encourage students who might not have considered pursuing a doctoral degree. It has also given us the opportunity to experiment with novel ways to promote graduate education and to increase the efficacy of existing activities.

LSAMP baccalaureate degree recipients are eligible for continued support for up to two additional years of STEM post baccalaureate study through the Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Activity. BD participants are expected to transition through graduate studies and into the professoriate and/or STEM workforce.

The NSF contribution to graduate student stipends is $60,000 over two years for each of twelve students. NSF will provide a cost-of-education allowance to the institution for tuition, health insurance, and other normal fees up to $10,500 per year for up to two years for each of twelve students.
