Dr. Pamela Hanakey, professor of immunology, and program director of the ASU-PENN State University Bridges To Doctorate Program in biological sciences, and Dr. Kimberly Griffin, assistant professor in the Department of Education at Penn State University , will make informative presentations about the Bridges to Doctorate Program as well as introduce the Penn State campus and its facilities for research and academic studies. Dr. Bettaiya Rajanna, Bridges to Doctorate Program director at Alcorn will join them.
Selected students will complete their graduate studies in biology at Alcorn. During this period, they will visit and stay, all expenses paid, at Penn State for 7 months to gain firsthand experience related to course work and research at the university. All accepted ASU-PSU scholars will transfer to Penn State upon graduation with a M.S. degree in biology from Alcorn. Each scholar will receive $11,700 for a 9 month-academic year. In addition, all tuition fees and required travel expenses will be paid by the program.
Currently, six Alcorn alumni are in doctoral programs at Penn State, and two more will enroll after completion of their graduate degrees in May 2012.
THIS IS AN UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO REALIZE YOUR ACADEMIC DREAMS. GRADUATING SENIORS AND GRADUATE STUDENTS ARE INVITED TO EXPERIENCE DREAMS OF NEW ACADEMIC HORIZONS.
