In May 2017, the first group of scholars graduated from Belmont.

For the 2017 graduation activities, a Bridges Scholar was a speaker at both Baccalaureate and Commencement.

Shirley Kyere, one of the recent Bridges to Belmont graduates was chosen to be one of the Board of Trustees Regents.

On average, around 35 percent of Bridges Scholars make the Dean's List every semester.

  • BSA
  • 629 Dance Club

Each year Bridges to Belmont collaborates with the Lila D. Bunch Library staff and hosts a local MNPS school for "Lila Loves Books", which is an event in celebration of Read Across America Day.

Since 2015, Bridges Scholars have actively participated in the Meharry Medical College BS to MD program.
