Bridge Fellowships are one-year fellowships which we will use to attract students from underrepresented groups who are motivated to pursue a PhD in math but may need extra training. Fellowship recipients will be selected from students we admit to our PhD program, and they will receive an extra year of funding to complete the degree. During their first year in the PhD program, fellowship recipients will have an opportunity to take preliminary coursework as needed and they will be closely mentored to ensure they adjust to life as a PhD student at Penn.
Before being admitted to our PhD program, fellowship candidates may be asked to participate in an online assessment to help us determine what preliminary coursework if any is needed. We may also request to discuss a candidate’s application with them over zoom. If you are interested in being considered for this fellowship, please indicate this on your application.
