Inaugurated in 2019, AGU’s Bridge Program was initiated to develop, adopt, and share inclusive practices for recruiting, admitting and retaining women and underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics graduate programs. AGU members are encouraged to share information about the AGU Bridge Program with any current or prospective students who may have an interest in pursuing graduate degrees in the Earth and space sciences. African American, Hispanic, American Indian, Pacific Islander, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian students who want to join the Bridge Program can take advantage of a free common graduate school application that will be shared with multiple partner institutions.

Students are encouraged to complete their application by April 1, 2020, to allow recommenders time to submit their letters of support before the application closes on April 15, 2020.
