Program Description:

In 1997, the College of Sciences and Mathematics established the STEM Summer Bridge Program to assist students who are historically excluded from STEM fields with academic and social support to excel within the rigorous COSAM curriculum. This 4-week program for highly motivated students will emphasize academic preparedness, the development and enhancement of study and time management skills, and building meaningful relationships with faculty, staff, and fellow students. Participants are responsible for transportation to and from Auburn University. In particular, the STEM Summer Bridge Program provides an opportunity for participants to: 
  • Enhance their science and math skills 
  • Develop/improve critical and analytical thinking skills
  • Engage in professional development and career awareness activities
  • Network with COSAM faculty, staff, and students as well as campus partners


"The Summer Bridge program assured me that I belong in science with people who care about me and wholeheartedly believe I can succeed," said '22 STEM Summer Bridge alumna Wei Wei Guo. "I have gained supportive friends who understand that we're all in this together, and mentors who never let me forget my capabilities or the endless possibilities I can achieve."
