Bridges Students Begin Graduate Work

Three Building Bridges students will begin their Ph.D programs this coming fall, from left-right: Adriana Garcia (Rice University University), Myisha Eatmon (Northwestern University), and Sofia Tirado (Rutgers University).

They are among eighteen graduating seniors from Cohort 15 who will start their work on advanced degrees. For the past two years Building Bridges helped produce thirty-three graduate school bound “Domers”, including seven to PhD programs.

All three will be fully funded by their departments, and for Adriana her first five years will be covered by a fellowship from the National Science Foundation.
