Cal-Bridge Youtube Channel
Check out the inspiring and informative videos created by Cal-Bridge. And check out this great opportunity of Cal-Bridge.
Cal-Bridge creates opportunities for historically underrepresented groups, including women, underrepresented minorities (URMs), members of the LGBTQ+ community, those with disabilities, and first generation students, to participate and advance in STEM fields including physics, astronomy, computer science, and computer engineering, to increase their numbers in PhD programs targeting our UC and other partner institutions.
Forty percent (40%) of Cal-Bridge scholars identify as women, whereas only 20% of PhD earners in Physics, Astronomy, Computer Science or Engineering are women. Similarly, almost 60% of our scholars identify as Black, Hispanic/Latinx, and/or Native American, while only 6% of Physics & Astronomy and ~10% of Computer Science & Engineering PhDs identify with those groups. Our scholars come from CSU campuses across California and enroll in PhD programs across the country.
