Affiliated Departments

As of  April 2022, the ACS Bridge Program has 40 Chemical Science departments in 35 locations in the United States. Of the 40 departments, 12 are Bridge Sites and 28 are Bridge Partners. All are master’s or doctoral-granting institutions that share ACS’s mission of broadening student participation in the chemical sciences through diversity, equity, and inclusion. Both Sites and Partners recruit Bridge Fellows, but Sites receive a three-year $180,000 financial package to establish their programs. Use this interactive map to explore our diverse Bridge community.

Other Non-ACS Programs

One of our Bridge Partners, Columbia University, has a separate “Bridge to the Ph.D. Program in STEM” initiative that is different from the ACS Bridge Program. Their mission and values are similar to our ACS Bridge Program, but they encompass a broader community in STEM – not just the chemical sciences. Their application deadline is Feb 15.
