Photo of a student getting experience in the lab.

This student is getting important experience in the lab. Rutgers' I3 project will focus on preparation for graduate education, transition to graduate education, and preparation for and transition to research careers in academia, government and industry while increasing the participation of traditionally underrepresented groups.

Photo of students involved in the Fisk-Vanderbilt Master's to Ph.D. Bridge program.

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Master's-to-Ph.D Bridge program was established in 2004. In just five years the program has attracted 31 underrepresented minority students, 60 percent of whom are women, and has become the nation's top producer of blacks earning master's degrees in physics. Since 2006 Fisk University has awarded about a third of the nation's African American master's degrees in physics. In academic year 2010-11 the program will become the top producer of African American PhDs in physics and astronomy. Shown are current Bridge students along with lead faculty and administrators from Fisk and Vanderbilt.
