While we can't guarantee full rides for our students as they head to college, we can promise to work alongside each student to maximize financial aid and to find scholarship opportunities. We also meet one-on-one with students regularly throughout high school to review class and extra-curricular opportunities to strengthen chances for merit-based scholarships.
Bridges raises money to be able to give small scholarships (usually $1,000 to $1,500) to a few students each year. We would love to be able to provide more aid for our amazing students! If you would like to contribute donations specifically for scholarships, you can designate your donation by adding a note, and/or you can contact Bridges to a Brighter Future directly.
