Bridges to the Baccalaureate Research Training Program at KU/Haskell Indian Nations

The mission of the Bridges Program is to provide opportunities for students from Haskell Indian Nations University to facilitate their transition from Haskell to KU, increasing the number of American Indian students who obtain advanced degrees in science and enter bioscience research fields.

Program Advantages

The Bridges program provides Haskell students with a mentored research experience in a KU bioscience research lab and tuition support to attend KU for one year. The program also provides personalized academic counseling and career development, and local opportunities to present research as well as financial support to attend at least one national scientific conference.
