AGU Bridge Program

The AGU Bridge program increases opportunities for students from historically marginalized communities to obtain graduate degrees in the geosciences and create a network of peers, mentors, and advisers to support and serve them before, during and after grad school. The Bridge program is part of the Inclusive Graduate Education Network.


Ecoss was selected by the American Geophysical Union’s Bridge program in 2022. Read the story, “A bridge to stronger, more diverse Earth sciences.”
