A one- or two-year post-baccalaureate program at MIT to facilitate the transition to graduate school. Participation is open to physics students who have completed a bachelor's degree and have participated in the MIT Summer Research Program. The Bridge Program is part of our effort to increase the number of PhDs awarded in physics to underrepresented minority students. Participants take classes, join a research group, and receive mentoring to improve the likelihood for a successful graduate school application to MIT or other schools.
