Delaware BRIDGE Fellowship

This two-year, post-baccalaureate fellowship program is designed to provide students from underrepresented groups (first-generation college students, students from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, underrepresented minorities) with intensive training in data science and applying it to studying the brain and behavior. Along with graduate-level coursework, BRIDGE scholars will engage in mentored research and professional development from multiple mentors at our university. Our goal is to provide students with the experience necessary to be competitive for graduate school. After completing the program, all BRIDGE scholars will receive a certificate in Data Science and Psychology from the University of Delaware.

Thanks to generous support from the National Science Foundation and the University of Delaware, all BRIDGE scholars will receive full financial support during the program. ​
