Bridge Program

Bridge, the 500 Nations Bridge Collaboration at Haskell, is a National Institute of Health (NIH) supported program.

The mission of the Bridge Program is to provide opportunities for students from Haskell Indian Nations University that facilitate their transition from Haskell to other 4-year universities, increasing the number of students who complete degrees in the biomedical sciences.

The Bridge program is designed to support Haskell students as they prepare to transfer into a biomedical program at University of Kansas (KU) or another 4-year institution. To prepare for transferring, Bridge students:

  • Complete a research experience in the lab of an experienced KU faculty mentor;
  • Take a seminar in research methods and experimental design;
  • Present at local symposia and national scientific meetings;
  • May complete at least one course on the KU campus prior to transferring; and
  • Gain assistance with obtaining financial support at KU or the transfer institution.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Haskell student
  • In Good Academic Standing
  • 2.5 GPA
  • Successfully Completed or Currently Enrolled in General Chemistry (CHEM 101).
