I understand that participation in the Bridge Program is an academic commitment. If selected as a Scholar, I will be expected
to seriously utilize this opportunity, be responsible and professional, follow all the rules of the laboratory where I will work,
attend all lab meetings, professional development sessions, social interaction activities, community service on weekends, and
participate in the Summer Research Institute and Symposium. I understand that it is a residential program that includes weekends
as well. I also understand that I will be expected to submit an abstract and paper, and present my research at an on campus symposium,
in addition to performing 6 weeks of research in this residential program. Program staff will assist students in preparing for
these activities. The program will provide academic support, a stipend of $3,000, meals, and room and board.
