The ACS Bridge Program, which is part of the ACS Bridge Project, is accepting proposals from institutions to become ACS Bridge sites. Bridge sites receive funding for up to 3 years to support underrepresented minority (URM) students as Bridge fellows. Applications are due by Sept. 1.
Applications are also being accepted for the ACS Bridge Travel and Career/Professional Development Award. These awards provide funding for undergraduate and graduate URM students to attend scientific conferences and other professional development events. Each award will cover up to $1,500 in eligible expenses for graduate students and up to $1,000 in expenses for undergraduate students. Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.
The ACS Bridge Project, supported by the US National Science Foundation and the Genentech Foundation, aims to diversify the graduate student population in the chemical sciences.
