Bridge Scholars Program

Brown University's Bridge Scholars Program (BSP) is a six-week hybrid summer leadership institute for incoming first-year students who identify as first-generation college students.

The program offers scholars a chance to experience the academic, social, and co-curricular life at Brown before the fall semester begins. Scholars will earn one full academic credit through two seminar-styled courses focusing on identity, skill building for effective learning, leadership, and effective communication across cultures. In addition, the program fosters a supportive peer community, connections with faculty and staff, and familiarity with campus resources.
