Information for 2023 Program

2023 Program: August 6-17

The Bridge Scholars Program (BSP) brings students who come from underrepresented backgrounds to attend an early-arrival program at Colorado College. Students who qualify as First-Generation, QuestBridge, or come from historically underrepresented backgrounds are considered and invited to the program. In 2023, the program will be held from August 6-17, with the move-in date on August 6th. Students will have the chance to engage in a half-credit course with an interdisciplinary nature, attend co-curricular sessions that introduce resources at CC, and connect with student peer mentors and CC faculty. You can read more about the goals of the program here.

Upon completion of the program, students will earn access to a plethora of resources. Students will also earn a $400 dollar grant to use for first-semester textbooks. This includes an opportunity to engage in our programming geared towards first-year students, such as our Pathways to SCoRe and Tiger Trek programs. We also partner with Outdoor Education for the Outdoor Leadership Program. You will also join a growing network of Bridge Scholars.
