 Student Opportunities

  • Second Bridge Award

    Students who engaged in a study-abroad program or a domestic community-engaged program crossed a “first bridge” that expanded their educational horizons. Crossing the “second bridge” requires a commitment to either an international setting or a domestic setting that will push the boundaries of traditional education, meet a community need, and afford a richer and deeper experience for the student.  Up to $2,000. Apply.
