Applications are now being accepted for the Hot Metal Bridge Post-Bac Program Fellowships for the 2019-2020 academic year.
This two-semester post-baccalaureate fellowship program is designed to help talented students from groups traditionally underrepresented in their academic disciplines, including first-generation graduate students and those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, to bridge the gap between an undergraduate degree and a graduate training program. Fellows enjoy financial support and mentoring by both faculty and graduate students as they prepare themselves for a successful program of doctoral studies. Of those who have completed the program since 2011, 80% have gone on to graduate studies at Pitt and elsewhere.
The application deadline is April 1. To learn more or to apply, please visit the Hot Metal Bridge website.
