The UTA Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Fellowship Program is not currently soliciting applications.
The UTA Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Bridge to the Doctorate Fellowship (LSAMP-BD) program, with generous funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF grant number HRD-1026806), aims to recruit, retain, and graduate increased numbers of under-represented minority (African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders) STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) professionals.
LSAMP-BD fellows receive a $30,000* stipend each year for two years as long as the program goals are met. The program provides funding for tuition and fees, student health insurance, research supplies, and travel to professional conferences to present research results.
Fellows receive intensive mentoring and academic support to assist them with the successful completion of their graduate studies. Once the initial two-year LSAMP-BD funding has been completed with satisfactory progress in the program, fellows will receive assistantships and full or partial tuition support by other UTA funding mechanisms to ensure their timely graduation.
