UC Berkeley is currently recruiting students for the 2021 NIH Bridges to Baccalaureate Summer Research Program.

The program runs from June 10-August 6, 2021

Applications are due March 31, 2021

This PAID summer program will introduce students to specific topics in research being conducted at UC Berkeley. No prior research experience is required. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the program will be entirely virtual.  If the public health situation allows, optional in-person activities may also be offered.  

To be eligible, students must be:

*A registered student at Chabot College or the Peralta Colleges

*U.S. citizen or permanent resident

*Not yet earned a Bachelor's degree

*African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Native American, or Pacific Islander

The goal of the NIH B2B Program is to increase the number of African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Native American, and Pacific Islander community college students who transfer to and graduate from 4 year colleges and universities in biomedical science majors.  Past B2B participants have transferred to universities including UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Davis, Stanford, and more.

The Associate Degree for Transfer (AD-T) is a transfer pathway used for admission to one of the 23 California State Universities (CSU).  This option allows students to complete an Associate’s degree while satisfying lower division general education and major requirements for transfer.  Students who are awarded an AD-T degree are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major.  For more information, contact the Counseling office to schedule an appointment with a counselor.  Go to the links at the top right of this page to see AD-Ts offered at Laney College.
