APS Bridge Program Accepting Member Institution Applications
The APS Bridge Program is developing a coalition of academic institutions that share a commitment to increasing educational opportunities for underrepresented minority physics students. Membership is free, and institutions that are actively working to improve diversity in the physics community may join. This network of member institutions will share innovative ideas, learn from leaders in the field, and promote awareness of the importance of diversity in physics.
