What is the Bridge Scholars Program?

The CSU Bridge Scholars Program provides residential college-life experience to select Colorado State University, first-year applicants. The program is designed to assist students, especially those from first-generation and underrepresented backgrounds, in making a successful transition to Colorado State University by:

  • Providing the Bridge Scholars with intensive on-campus collegiate experience, including an award to cover room & board, tuition & fees, and books and supplies. (We hope to host an on-campus residential experience for this summer 2021, but due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, we may need to adjust to a hybrid or a completely online program).
  • Enhancing academic skills and college preparation through group study, tutoring, and supplemental instruction
  • Building campus networks and opportunities to participate in leadership activities
  • Creating long-lasting connections with your Bridge Scholars cohort

Taking the next step on your college journey may seem like a huge undertaking, but we are here to help you.

Your application will be evaluated by a committee that will focus not only on your academic ability, but also on expressed academic and personal goals in achieving a post-secondary University degree.

Successful Bridge Scholars will demonstrate a strong commitment to completing their college education and serve as leaders within the campus community. If selected, you will be challenged, encouraged, and supported. Most importantly, due to the nature of the program, the trajectory of your CSU experience will be forever positively altered. For this reason, we ask that you give this application your full and careful consideration.
