Fisk-Vanderbilt Master's-to-PhD Bridge Program

We are raising money for a "hardship fund" which would mitigate some of the financial burden students face. Students who wish to submit an expense for reimbursement should first contact a member of the Bridge Administrative Team to discuss their situation

About


The Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s to PhD Bridge Program exists to improve the demographic representation in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Studies indicate that underrepresented minority (URM) students are more likely to use the master’s degrees as a stepping stone to the PhD. Hence, to increase the number of URM students engaged in PhD-level STEM research, a relationship between Fisk University, which is an accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), and Vanderbilt University was conceived.
