Summer Bridge Program for Chicago Public School Students

College Bridge at the University of Chicago is an exciting opportunity for advanced high school students from the Chicago Public School system to challenge themselves by enrolling in a rigorous university course. Tuition, fees, and textbooks are fully funded by the UChicago Office of Civic Engagement.

College Bridge consists of two programs: Academic Year Bridge and Summer Bridge. Eligible students can apply to either program or both programs. Courses available during Summer Bridge are a part of the Summer Quarter Undergraduate Course Offerings and range from biology to history to the humanities. Subjects open to Bridge students vary and depend upon student interest and preparedness. Specific bridge course choices will be determined during the finalist interviews.

Please visit the Summer Bridge program page for more information, eligibility requirements, and to submit an application.

You should begin the application process well in advance of the deadline on March 31, 2016.
