Abstract: The Cal-Bridge has the mission of increasing participation of groups traditionally underrepresented in astronomy, through financial support, intensive, joint mentoring by CSU and UC faculty, professional development workshops, and exposure to a wide variety of research opportunities, creating a national impact on their numbers successfully pursuing a PhD in the field. In the first three years, 18 of 20 Cal-Bridge Scholars have begun or will be attending PhD programs in astronomy or physics at top PhD programs nationally. Five (5) of these 20 scholars have won NSF Graduate Research Fellowships.
