A joint program in astronomy, biology, chemistry, physics and materials science. We are looking for students with the persistence and passion to pursue the training they need to be ready for the Ph.D. The Bridge Program provides something truly unique, a family atmosphere, with caring mentors combined with high-level research. By joining the Fisk-Vanderbilt Bridge Program you will connect with a community of over 60 students, more than 90% of whom have successfully continued on toward the PhD at Vanderbilt and other top institutions and have won major fellowships from NSF, NASA, and the Ford Foundation.
