Bridge Scholars Program

The Bridge Scholars Program provides a college life experience at Colorado State University to Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search high school graduates and select Colorado State University freshmen applicants who participate in this eight-week University Summer Session residential program.

The program is designed to:

  • Assist students from underrepresented backgrounds to make a successful transition to Colorado State University.
  • Increase retention through an intensive on-campus "Bridge" experience and by providing the Bridge Scholars with an award to cover room & board, tuition & fees, and books and supplies.
  • Enhance academic skills through group study and supplemental instruction.
  • Create campus resource connections and participate in leadership development activities.
