About

The LSAMP Summer Bridge Program is a two-week residential initiative to aid in the transition from high school to college.  The program will be held July 6 – 18 on the UAH campus.  During this program students will have an opportunity to experience living on campus, mock classes, research opportunities and other resource material. The program targets populations underrepresented in STEM and students who complete the program become eligible for the LSAMP Transition Scholarship.
