The University of Alabama's Department of Physics and Astronomy is thrilled to be a new APS Bridge Partnership Site. Students accepted to our program are automatically admitted to our PhD program from day one and provided either a graduate teaching assistantship or fellowship covering tuition, monthly stipend, and health insurance. This gives students a firm commitment of support, regardless of whether they leave for another PhD program or finish their studies with us and eliminates some of the risk inherent in moving to a new location and program. We provide an individualized program for each student to enable success in graduate study: Students are given extra allowances in the program to take advanced undergraduate courses where needed, receive multiple layers of mentoring, and join a research group in year one.
