LSAMP Bridge to the Doctorate Program (BD)

The Bridge-to-the-Doctorate Program (BD) is a NSF initiative within the LSAMP Program that provides former LSAMP baccalaureate degree graduates with a fellowship for graduate studies. The ultimate goal is to increase the number of underrepresented students obtaining a Ph.D. in a STEM field. Students have the opportunity to continue their education at one of many LSAMP graduate institutions across the nation. Students will receive a $32,000 stipend along with full remission of tuition and fees during their time in graduate school. To find locations where this program is offered please contact us at

NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)

The National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) helps ensure the vitality of the human resource base of science and engineering in the United States and reinforces its diversity.  The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited US institutions. The National Science Foundation welcomes applications from all qualified students and strongly encourages under-represented populations, including women, under-represented racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities, to apply for this fellowship.
