Undergraduate: Bridges to Biomedicine

What is Bridges to Biomedicine? partner institutions logos

Bridges to Biomedicine is a program that provides support for community college students who identify as belonging to a group recognized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as underrepresented in biomedical science, and who are studying chemistry or biology with plans to transfer to a university for a baccalaureate degree in a biomedical field. The program is a partnership between Texas State University in San Marcos, and San Antonio College and Northwest Vista College in San Antonio.

The program will provide paid undergraduate research experience during the school year and the summer, opportunities for academic and professional development, and intensive advising and support to get and keep the student on-track for transfer and on-time bachelor's degree completion.
