Baltimore City Community College Partners with Howard University and From Prison Cells to PHD to Launch the Bridges to Baccalaureate Program

Baltimore City Community College is excited to announce a new partnership with From Prison Cells to PHD and Howard University for the launch of the Bridges to Baccalaureate Program.

Made possible through a NIH (National institute of Health) T34 grant, “Bridges to the Baccalaureate Research Training Program at Baltimore City Community College and Howard University” is a creative STEM training program that provides educational readiness by From Prison Cells to PHD. While enrolled at Baltimore City Community College scholars are also provided with a “Student Focused” education that has made BCCC an anchor in the community for 75 years. In the summer between years 1 and 2 cohorts will attend a 10-week STEM research internship at Howard University.  Upon completing their associate degree at BCCC, participants will then transition to a 4-year school.

The first Bridges to Baccalaureate Cohorts Rosie Butts, Henry Goldberg, Jacob Maynard and Amber Monsky are excited at this opportunity to pursue their degrees.
