500 Nations Bridge Collaboration: University of Kansas/Haskell Indian Nations University

The KU/Haskell Bridge Program is offered through the Office for Diversity in Science Training, which coordinates the management of several externally-funded programs for underrepresented students at KU and Haskell Indian Nations University.

Transitioning To a 4-Year Program

The mission of the Bridge Program is to provide opportunities for students from Haskell Indian Nations University to facilitate their transition from Haskell to other 4-year universities, increasing the number of American Indian students who obtain advanced degrees in science and enter biomedical research fields.
