The University at Albany is launching a program called Bridge to the Doctorate to encourage women and low-income students to pursue advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

The program is funded by a $987,000 National Science Foundation grant and will provide fellowships to qualified students. Bridge to the Doctorate is part of the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation program at the foundation.

Since 2008, UAlbany has had a Center for Achievement, Retention and Student Success to recruit and retain students with science and math majors through academic support services, mentoring and tutoring.

The university ranked 22nd in the nation and second in New York state with the highest number of women enrolled in biology disciplines, according to a report by The College Database.
