Our Organization Thrives with Your Support

What your contribution will do:

Your contribution to our goal of $5,000 will provide a stipend that supports a student’s dream of becoming the first in their family to graduate from college – and the dream is already in action!


BRDG partners with junior-year, 1st generation college students – like Melissa – who are pursuing studies in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) in an unknown environment of higher education that’s filled with rules, regulations and expectations that often feel as if they’ve been set-up to direct them away from successfully achieving their goals. 


It can be overwhelming, with each day filled with fearful moments and difficult, conflicting emotion.


But by supporting these students with experienced guidance as to the “rules of the road” for navigating through the norms of college, they prove they can survive and even thrive.


After graduating from University and the BRDG program, Melissa is now a System Analyst at a major US corporation.


BRDG focuses on transforming these talented, 1st -generation students into successful employees serving the STEM sector.


Your support, now, will help make that life transformation happen to more students like Melissa.
