BRIDGES students come from diverse backgrounds, but they share common goals: To find a community of supportive and like-minded friends on campus who aid you in your transition to the university and to go on to do great things after graduation.

That’s what BRIDGES is here for. We connect students to each other, campus leaders, resources and opportunities, professional networks, and build leaders with the skills for lifelong success. 

Start Building Your Bridge to Success

BRIDGES is a program exclusively for underrepresented scholarship recipients. Eligible students are invited to join via mail and e-mail prior to the start of their first term. If you are an underrepresented student attending the University of Pittsburgh and received a Univerity scholarship but have not received an invitation, please e-mail us on Day One of your PittStart at 1 pm in the Gardner Steel Conference Center (enter under the tan awning) to meet current mentors, ask questions, or register for the program and pre-orientation retreat. If you are unable to make the information session, come by at any time during your PittStart and we will be more than happy to connect with you!
