Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program

The Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program at the New York City College of Technology, funded by the National Institutes of Health provides support to underrepresented students make transitions at a critical stage in their development as scientists. In partnership with Brooklyn College, CUNY, the program provides a variety of services including intensive academic advisement, peer mentoring and paid authentic research experiences. The program targets students earning an associate degree (LAS, LAA, unclassified or unclassified health) at City Tech and facilitates their transfer to Brooklyn College to earn their Bachelor’s degree in biomedical or behavioral sciences (Biology, Chemistry, or Psychology).
