Bridges to Belmont

The Bridges to Belmont program was launched in 2013 as a full scholarship program designed to enroll high-potential students from Metro Nashville Public Schools who may not have previously been able to consider Belmont as an option. 

This program focuses on creating an environment that focuses on academic achievement, community service and personal development to empower students’ personal passion to have an impact on the world through their education. Bridges scholars take part in a six week summer academy on campus the summer prior to their fall freshmen semester. 

Bridges Scholars are currently selected from four Metro Nashville Public Schools – Stratford STEM High School, Maplewood High School, Whites Creek High School and Pearl Cohn –Entertainment Magnet. Bridges to Belmont reflects a deliberate step on the part of Belmont’s administration to enhance the University’s cultural and ethnic diversity while also continuing efforts to provide an opportunity for higher education to students in Metropolitan Nashville Schools

For additional information about becoming a Bridges to Belmont scholar, contact your guidance counselor at one of our four feeder high schools.
