STEM Summer Bridge Program

June 4 - June 30, 2017

In 1997, the College of Sciences and Mathematics established the STEM Summer Bridge Program to assist students that are underrepresented in STEM fields with academic and social support to excel with the rigorous COSAM curriculum. This 4-week residential program for highly motivated students takes place on the main campus of Auburn University and emphasizes academic preparedness, development and enhancement of study and time management skills. 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
