The APS, ACS and AGU continue to expand the number of academic institutions with which they partner. The American Physical Society now has over 40 graduate Physics Graduate programs officially committing to utilize inclusive practices. Since the APS Bridge program began 7 years ago, over 200 graduate students have been placed in graduate programs, with our first two graduates completing their PhDs this year.

The American Chemical Society launched their Bridge program this year with new academic partners in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering departments. Nine graduate students were placed in these programs this past year.

The American Geophysical Union is launching their Bridge program this fall.

The Materials Research Society and American Astronomical Society both plan to launch their Bridge programs in 2020.
