The Chemistry and Chemical Biology Graduate Admissions Pathways (CCBGAP) Program establishes a long-term partnership in mentoring and research collaboration between faculty at the University of California, Davis, and Xavier University of Louisiana.
The program consists of three components:
- academic year preparation for Xavier University sophomores and juniors;
- summer research and mentoring for students selected as CCBGAP Scholars;
- follow-up mentoring for seniors who have completed the CCBGAP program, with the goal of admission to a strong graduate program in chemistry or related fields.
CCBGAP scholars will receive a summer stipend of $4300, with housing, meals, and expenses of travel to Davis covered by the CCBGAP program.
Any student who completes the CCBGAP program and who is admitted to a PhD program at any UC campus is eligible to receive two years of stipend and fees from the University of California Office of the President with a match from the graduate program.
