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.

"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
