Scholar Testimonials

The Summer Bridge Scholars Program is a community of scholars that learn, work, and have an immense amount of fun together. Don't believe us? Read what some of our scholars have said about their summer experience. 

“I didn’t think I’d be wanting to go back, but I’m really looking forward to the fall semester. I didn’t lose my summer with the [Summer] Bridge [Scholars] Program at all, if anything I’ve gained a lot - from new friends and experiences to having confidence in my intellectual abilities and social skills. Thank you UM Bridge Scholars!" 

~ Khadiza Begum, SBSP Class of 2016



The best aspect about the Summer Bridge Scholars [Program] experience was the community that I built for those seven weeks that I was on campus. As an out-of-state student it helped me feel more comfortable being in a new environment. I honestly believe that it would have been much more difficult for me to adjust if I would have just came in the Fall of 2016.”
