Bridges to a Brighter Future at Furman University

Our Mission

The mission of Bridges to a Brighter Future at Furman University is to transform the lives of students whose potential outdistances their circumstances by providing educational access and opportunity through a comprehensive program that builds self-confidence, resiliency, and leadership in order to break the cycle of poverty through post-secondary education.

Our Program

Bridges to a Brighter Future at Furman University provides academic support and engagement for our students to prepare them for current and future challenges and triumphs. We provide Bridges students with the knowledge, resources, guidance, and confidence to graduate from high school, successfully plan to complete college, and enter the workplace equipped for success. In cooperation with Greenville County Schools and with community support, we offer year-round student programming for Bridges students through college graduation.

Saturday College is a monthly opportunity for Bridges @ Furman Scholars to immerse themselves in academics, college planning, and well-being through book studies, small groups, and workshops. We will begin on September 30th with Orientation, Meeting Furman Mentors, and Small Group Connections.
