Welcome to our Program!

The Southern Illinois Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program (SI Bridges) is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and provides paid biomedical and behavioral science research training and professional development for underserved community college students. Students receive assistance in transferring to SIU and completing a baccalaureate degree in science, technology, engineering, math, or social science disciplines.

SI Bridges is a partnership amongst Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIU), John A. Logan College (JALC), and Shawnee Community College (SCC).
