Building Bridges to Bioengineering (B3) provides mentored research experiences and academic opportunities for underrepresented minority students at Seattle area community colleges. Our goal is to increase the number of students transferring to bioengineering degree programs at the University of Washington. Continued funding of the B3 Program is pending.
Opportunities for Community College Students
Participate in a summer research program at a world-class research institution. B3 students will:
Work with mentors in UW laboratories on multidisciplinary research projects.
Attend workshops to learn effective scientific communication skills.
Present the results of their work at a research poster session.
Receive guidance from an academic counselor for a successful transition to a four-year university.
