Second Bridge Scholarship Award
The Second Bridge Scholarship Award encourages UAA undergraduates enrolled in any degree-seeking program to pursue a structured but non-traditional educational experience that expands their educational horizons. Crossing a second bridge requires a commitment to either an international or a domestic setting that will push the boundaries of traditional education and bring the promise of a richer and deeper experience.
