Transfer Bridges to the Humanities (TB2H) at the University of Michigan is a program for GRCC students who want to study the humanities and humanistic social sciences and then transfer to U-M Ann Arbor’s College of Literature, Science, and the Arts to complete their bachelor’s degree. The program also includes summer program components, and other co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities so students will get to know their U-M professors and fellow students before transferring from GRCC to U-M Ann Arbor. TB2H students at GRCC will have the opportunity to take part in programming on their campus and in Ann Arbor with the following TB2H partners.
To learn more about the humanities and humanistic social sciences and the support available on GRCC's campus, visit the Transfer Bridges to the Humanities website at Grand Rapids Community College.
Do you have questions about specific majors, research, graduate school, or just academic planning in general? Transfer Bridges students can meet directly with faculty and staff in academic departments to explore their interests, even before you are admitted to U-M.
Student-led organization that offers workshops, mentorship, and funding for students to create self-directed projects that make a positive impact. Transfer Bridges students can take part in storytelling workshops, visits to Ann Arbor, and participation in social innovation challenges while they are still enrolled at GRCC.
optiMize moMentum is for community college students pre-transfer. optiMize aMplify is for transfer students at Michigan. Both are led by UM students who recently transferred, and both connect you with some of Michigan's most valuable resources.
The moMentum fellowship gives you the opportunity to spend two days exploring the University of Michigan—either in Ann Arbor or at a site closer to you—exploring everything that UM has to offer in the way of resources, social innovation, and entrepreneurial skills. Plus you will meet a lot of amazing fellow community college students and receive a $500 stipend for participating.
