Summer Bridge Scholastic Program
Bridge scholars are newly admitted Berkeley freshman who have already met (or exceeded) UC Berkeley's high admission standards. They are among the most outstanding high school graduates in the U.S. and around the world.
The 368 scholars who participated in Bridge 2015:
Received admission to all five (5) academic colleges and over 60 majors;
Recipients of the Achievement Award, Berkeley Science (S-STEM) Network, Gates Millennium, Intercollegiate Athletics, MasterCard Foundation, Scholar Athletes, Cal Opportunity, and Regents & Chancellors Scholars
Hailed from over 29 California counties, 12 different U.S. states, and International scholars from 16 different countries;
Represented more than 30 linguistic frames and over 70 ethnic backgrounds.
Bridge scholars receive a competitive advantage over their freshman peers. They complete the Summer Bridge Program with:
Early Completion of U.C. Berkeley Coursework—Scholars will have the opportunity to complete up to eight (9) units of coursework toward their graduation requirements and UC GPA, prior to the start of their Freshman year.
Academic and Social Support System—powerful network of faculty, advisors, tutors, and peer/scholars, that endures throughout their academic (and often professional) tenure
Early Campus Orientation and Resources – Scholars gain a better understanding of faculty expectations and University culture. They learn how to access and navigate Cal1, library/ research databases, residential life, and more!
