250 Participants. 90% continued on to engineering or science B.S. degree programs.
Summer Bridge is a fast paced, challenging experience with the opportunity to earn scholarship support and build networking opportunities for future internships. Recent high school graduates who are interested in engineering and science BS degree programs in the fall at the University of Alaska are eligible. During the nine-week Summer Bridge component each student completes a university-level advanced math class and works with industry professionals within our partner organizations, which range from private-industry firms to public sector and government agencies. Some students work out in the field while others gain experience working in a corporate setting, but all students broaden their knowledge of career opportunities as they focus on solving real-world problems in engineering and science.
