How the Program Works
Five master's students (three from DePaul and two from Purdue) will be recruited for the UIC CON Doctoral program each year. To be eligible for the Bridges Program to PhD study, students must: take approximately 10 semester hours of UIC courses during their master's degree program, apply for the UIC PhD program as soon as they are ready during their master's degree study, and be admitted to the UIC PhD program upon approval by the Graduate Admission committee of the CON and the Graduate College, UIC (pending successful completion of the master's program).
Campus housing will be available and study space for students will be provided. Financial support, traineeships, fellowships, or research assistantships with stipends for doctoral study will be provided for the selected master's students. UIC faculty members will be available as faculty advisors and collaborators.
