We hope your Spring quarter is in full-bloom and going well! We are happy to share some GANAS Doctoral Summer Bridge program updates with everyone. We are currently interviewing our potential graduate student mentors and look forward to confirming our 3 new mentors next week! We here at GANAS Graduate Pathways are especially elated to be accepting participation applications from incoming MFA & MA students in addition to incoming PhD students for this year's bridge program. We have also decided to extend the participation application deadline to midnight on May 31st to give any and all interested incoming students the opportunity to finish working on their applications.
As a reminder our DSB program will be taking place on-campus from July 22nd - July 29th this summer! Participating students will be provided with room and board throughout the program and will also receive a $500 participation stipend to be paid out in the Fall quarter of this year. We are excited to be including a number of campus partners in this summer’s programming including, the UCSC Basic Needs Team, the Disability Resource Center; CAPS counseling services; the Graduate Student Commons;, the Teaching and Learning Center, with more campus partners being confirmed everyday.
We can’t wait to welcome 15 incoming graduate students from across campus disciplines to take part in this summer’s program! I'm including an updated program flier, participant FAQ's, and the informational DSB slide presentation I've been sharing with folks as it's suitable for all interested individuals (students, staff, etc). I also wanted to note that I'm more than happy to schedule group and/or 1:1 info sessions with anyone who would like to learn more about the program and/or participant application process. Let us know if you have any questions or if there's anything else we can do to help support these outreach efforts from our end of things.
