Bridge Program Learners are scholarship-winning students who participate in the Bridge courses but are not Bridge Fellows. Learners do not receive Bridge funding.
Graduate students interested in becoming Learners should send a letter to the Bridge Program Manager by the March 1st deadline indicating their interest in taking the courses and providing evidence that they fulfill the following criteria:
- They are enrolled in a graduate program in one of the 8 participating academic units.
- They have won a graduate scholarship and have a minimum A- GPA.
- They have met with the BRDG 501/601 course instructor to discuss the rationale for taking the courses and the workload involved.
Note that the maximum BRDG class size is 15 students, with no more than 1 Learner per research development team.
