Our new NSF BRIDGE program grant

I am thrilled to announce our new NSF grant with Tim Vickery titled “Training Diverse Scholars in Data Science to Understand the Brain and Behavior.” We will establish a bridge program in data science and psychology/neuroscience at the University of Delaware. This post-bac program will provide individuals from underrepresented groups (underrepresented minorities, first-gen, low-income) with two years of training to prepare them for STEM careers in academia and/or industry via mentored research and coursework.

All students in the program will receive free tuition and a graduate level stipend, along with funding to support research and conference travel. For more information, please go to the Delaware Bridge Program website.

I will be attending SACNAS in San Juan, PR next week to advertise the new Bridge program (and other great opportunities here at UD). For those attending SACNAS, feel free to visit the University of Delaware booth to learn more about the program.
