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 STEM summer bridge program is very important to me," said 2020 STEM Summer Bridge alumna Bev Thomas. "It gave me a community where I feel vulnerable, accepted, and free to be myself. The most important aspect of the program was meeting like-minded people who all have a common goal; we want to succeed in our field and make a great name for our communities."



Requirements for student participation:
  • Any member of a historically excluded group in STEM including but not limited to: Ethnic minority groups, students from rural areas, first generation students, and women
  • Incoming freshman accepted to Auburn University College of Science and Mathematics
