Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 UCSD-Morehouse-Spelman Physics Bridge Program. This fourth summer has been made possible with funding from the UC-HBCU Initiative program and the National Science Foundation. This program is open to Morehouse and Spelman students from any year, with preference to Physics, Engineering and Material Science majors. There are no citizenship or residency requirements to participate. Applications are open through Friday April 21st.
The 2016 UCSD-Morehouse-Spelman UC-HBCU Bridge Program class has been selected, and includes four students from Morehouse College and one student from Spelman. These were selected from among 10 students who applied, on the basis of GPA, research interests and recommendations from faculty and mentors.
The UCSD-Morehouse-Spelman Physics Bridge program has selected its Bridge Scholars Class for 2015. They are (from left to right): Christian Aganze (3nd year Morehouse, Physics), Dakari Franklin (2nd year Morehouse, Physics & Math), Saidou N’gaide’ (3rd year Morehouse, Applied Physics/Aerospace Engineering), Alaja Phillips (4th year Spelman, Physics) and Wayne Stevens (2nd year Morehouse, Physics). Christian and Saidou will be returning for a second year. Each of these students will be paired with one the UCSD faculty mentors for an 8-week research position and graduate preparation training.

Congratulations to you all!
The UCSD-Morehouse Physics Bridge program has selected its first class of Bridge Scholars for 2014. They are (from left to right): Christian Aganze (2nd year, Physics/Electrical Engineering), Jeremy Ariche (2nd year, Physics), Saidou N’gaide’ (2nd year, Applied Physics/Aerospace Engineering), Julian Pilate-Hutcherson (3rd year, Applied Physics/Civil Engineering) and Jarrhett Butler (4th year, Applied Physics/Nuclear Engineering). Each of these students will be paired with one the UCSD faculty mentors for an 8-week research position and graduate preparation training.
Morehouse students participating the UCSD-Morehouse Bridge Program will participate in the Summer Training Academy for Research in the Sciences, or STARS program. This 8-week academy compliments the research activities with graduate preparation and training, including GRE preparation, graduate school workshops, introduction to and essay-writing workshops for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and an opportunity to present research at the UCSD Summer Research Conference.
The STARS program is run by the Office of Graduate Studies by Veronica Henson-Phillips. For more information, visit http://ogs.ucsd.edu/student-affairs/summer-research/stars/
