The departments of physics and astrophysics have teamed up to create bridge programs in our separate departments. The goal is to prepare students for entry into physics Ph.D. programs at Princeton or elsewhere. We target a steady state of two students in Physics and 4 students in Astro with each student spending two years in the program. The students are incorporated into an existing research group and take one or two undergraduate classes a semester. The program includes a full academic year (10 month) stipend, full tuition waiver, full summer stipend and $2,000 research and travel fund.
