BRIDGE Scholarship

Purpose: Black Resourceful Innovators Developing Generations of Excellence (BRIDGE) is a non-profit organization created as the centralized group for black professionals to bridge the generational gap of black leaders in our community. The BRIDGE Scholarship Fund is a way for the organization to financially support high school seniors in their endeavors to pursue higher education – an initiative that is mission driven. The amount of scholarship will be dependent upon available funds during the application year. Scholarship funds are non-renewable and will only be applicable for the timeframe approved unless otherwise stated. An interview may be requested by the BRIDGE executive board to make a final decision.
