Our mission is to assist early-career scientists from underrepresented communities through mentoring programs and scholarships to promote diversity in the sciences to further equity, international collaboration, and innovative research.
Dimensions Sciences volunteers have been working for the past 6-months to get to this moment!
We are thrilled to announce the 2022 Bridges Scholarship winners. Congratulations!
We thank to all scientists that applied for the Bridges scholarship and mentoring program. We are proud of receiving applications from 23 scientists from Brazil doing research in life sciences and health sciences.
We believe that now - more than ever - is the time to support scientists transforming the world through their discoveries and scientific research.
It was a huge effort, and our Scientific Advisory Board played an incredibly important role in the selection process.
Applications were received, and eligibility of candidates based on the inclusion criteria confirmed. Approximately 65% of candidates self-identified as black or pardo, 13 % as mother of school-age children, 21% LGBTQIA+, and 43 % low-income respectively.
About 23 eligible applications were evaluated by 12 Ad-Hoc advisors at doctoral level in areas relevant for the applications. Each application was reviewed by at least 2 advisors summing up to approximately 46 evaluations.
Twelve (12) top ranking applications were evaluated by an independent steering committee formed by senior scientists, entrepreneurs, and executives with relevant experience in life sciences and health sciences. Each finalist was evaluated by each of the committee members summing up to the approximately 72 evaluations.
Seven (7) Scholars were selected for the 2022 DS Bridges scholarship and mentoring program. All 23 applicants were recommended for the complimentary mentoring program!
