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. 

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 a higher education opportunity to students from Nashville. The program creates an environment of academic achievement, community service, and personal development to empower students’ personal passion to have an impact on the world through their education. All 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 ten Metro Nashville Public Schools – Stratford STEM High School, Maplewood High School, Whites Creek High School, Pearl Cohn –Entertainment Magnet, Glencliff High School, Hillsboro High School, Hillwood High School, Hunters Lane High School, McGavock High School, and Overton High School.

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