What is Bridges to the Baccalaureate?

Bridges to the Baccalaureate is a new, comprehensive academic support and guidance program between Allan Hancock College (AHC) and California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) for underrepresented minority students who wish to transfer to a four-year university and pursue careers in the biomedical or behavioral sciences. Funded by the prestigious National Institutes of Health Division of Minority Opportunities in Research, this program will give Bridges scholars the academic skills, research experience, and support network necessary for success in these fields at the university level and successful application and acceptance to graduate programs in the future.

Bridges Scholars will have the opportunity to enroll in:

  • A student-faculty program to receive guidance from AHC faculty
  • A Strategies for Success online tutorial to improve study skills
  • A workshop series for core science courses to help you succeed academically
  • An advanced gross anatomy laboratory course to give you hands-on experience in human cadaver dissection
  • A paid summer research internship at Cal Poly where you will plan and carry out a research project with Cal Poly faculty in biological sciences, biochemistry, biomedical engineering, or behavioral sciences.

My Advice to others is to never give-up because there is always a solution. Real life is more difficult than a math problem, so be prepared. There are always people interested in your success, and there are always tools that will help you find the solutions. If you dedicate time to your education not only will it transform your life but also those around you.
