New Diversity Recruitment Initiative and the Hot Metal Bridge Program

The Hot Metal Bridge Program at the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh is a two-semester post-baccalaureate fellowship program for students who will help us meet our diversity goals. We will provide a two-term fellowship for fall and spring term 2017-2018 (including tuition and stipend) for up to nine fellows. The point of the HMBP is to bridge the gap between an undergraduate degree and a graduate training program, and to help individuals prepare themselves for a successful program of doctoral studies. The featured programs for academic year 2017-2018 are: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Economics, Mathematics, Neuroscience and Psychology. [Learn More]
